“Part of the versatility of Maths is that once you’ve got a well-stocked tool kit, you’ll be able to tackle the issues that arise from many different scenarios and applications” - Vicky Neale                                                                                    

Our mathematics curriculum encompasses the key mathematical concepts of Number, Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Proportion and Probability, with a focus on depth of understanding, reasoning and problem solving. 

Our KS3 curriculum is designed to give learners a firm basis of knowledge and confidence, providing them with a seamless transition to GCSE study.

Students are taught in mixed ability groups, and complete milestone tasks in the form of end of unit test which mirror the format, structure and wording of GCSE examinations.
