Maths

Mathematics is central to our understanding of the world in which we live, to our control of our environment, and to the organisation of our society. It underpins science, technology, medicine, economics and government.  We believe we offer a programme which enables all students to reach their potential and provides them with a necessary grounding in mathematics for life outside school.    

EXTRA CURRICULAR CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES

The Maths department offers lunchtime and after school revision sessions for GCSE students.  We also run a homework help club for all years at lunchtime on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

In all years students are tested regularly (in years 7 to 10 we test each half term).  Year 11 have formal mock exams as well as regular testing throughout the year.

 At KS4 there are two tiers of entry:

Foundation - with grades available 1 to 5 (approximately equivalent to the old G to B) and

Higher— with grades available 4 to 9 (approximately equivalent to the old C to A* as well as a new A**).
