“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. 

Maths Curriculum Vision: 

  • Every student believes they can be successful in their maths study
  • Every student develops key problem-solving, reasoning and critical thinking skills that will serve them well in other disciplines and beyond school
  • Every student develops an appreciation for the application and utility of maths to the real world as well as the creative and interconnected nature of the discipline
  • Every student experiences stretch and challenge within their lessons, which fosters resilience, curiosity and a sense of achievement in every lesson
  • Every student experiences high quality mathematics education, which empowers them to become confident, competent and articulate mathematicians

Maths Curriculum Intent: 

  • To shape students’ ability to reason mathematically and appreciate the beauty and power of mathematics
  • Provide students with an opportunity to develop mathematical fluency and problem solving abilities
  • To ensure that all students have a solid foundation for GCSE study and beyond

Key Stage 3 and4 outline


GCSE Statistics

GCSE Statistics

Pupils have to option to study GCSE Statistics at Key Stage 4. Statistics is a GCSE subject intended to introduce students to the skills of statistical enquiry, and practise the underpinning statistical calculations and interpretation using real world data and authentic contexts. This approach supports skills development for progression to a range of subjects and develops an awareness of statistics beyond the classroom. Learners choosing this option will study both GCSE Maths and GCSE Statistics, leading to two GCSEs at the end of Year 11.

Number Day

Pi Day

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately

3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and eat pie. Pi has been calculated to over 50 trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorise, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.


UKMT Maths Challenge 

Promoting a love of problem solving! The Junior Mathematical Challenge is a 60-minute, multiple-choice Challenge. It encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems. The problems on the Junior Mathematical Challenge are designed to make students think. Most are accessible, yet still challenge those with more experience. You child will be informed by the Maths team regarding the next UKMT challenge dates.


Further Maths

We are very excited to offer Further Maths as an enrichment option. Further mathematics is a level 2 qualification intended to cater for learners who would like to study beyond the higher tier GCSE syllabus in mathematics and who are capable of working above this level. The syllabus is designed to broaden the mathematical experience of high attaining learners, and assess their higher level mathematical skills, particularly in algebraic reasoning, in greater depth, thus preparing them fully to maximise their potential in further studies.

Due to the nature of this enrichment, it is only open to Year 10 students and above. This enrichment will be ongoing, we are happy to absorb the cost of entry into the official qualification, however for the school to do this individual attendance to the sessions must be good"
