Curriculum Intent

Maths is an all-embracing and pervading part of life, helping us to create, plan, organise and solve problems.

Mathematics is the universal language of our environment, helping mankind explain and create within it for thousands of years. From playing games to playing music, maths is vital to helping students fine tune their creativity and turn their dreams into reality.

Our curriculum is based on the national programmes of study and lessons are accessible to all students in the class to create opportunities and build familiarity and accuracy in techniques and to allow students to use their skills in everyday life. We cover a variety of topics which allow students to excel in their learning in different fields. Students know that when they come to lessons they will be entering a positive environment for learning where they learn new techniques and challenges are accepted.

We revisit topics throughout the 5-year course to consolidate understanding and encourage students to link their work with other areas to extend their thinking. We have a strong focus on developing problem-solving skills alongside mathematical content to ensure we develop resilient, independent learners ready to tackle GCSE and beyond.

The GCSE course has two tiers of entry and students are assessed on ability regularly and entered for the appropriate syllabus and tier.

Foundation tier: Grades 5-1

Higher tier: Grades 9-4
