Mathematics

All students follow the National Curriculum which includes coverage of the key concepts of Mathematics – competence; creativity; applications and implications of mathematics; critical understanding. These are studied through the key processes in Mathematics, which are representing; analysing; interpreting and evaluating; communicating and reflecting. The content of study includes number and algebra, geometry and measures and statistics.

Where possible, in Key Stage 3 students are grouped by ability so that they are able to develop appropriate skills and reach their full potential.

In Key stage 4, students are grouped by ability and follow different routes which allow them to make the best progress possible. These courses include qualifications for Entry Level Mathematics and Functional Skills, GCSE Mathematics, Functional skills at Level 1 and 2 and an Award in Number and Measure at Level 1 and 2.
