Mathematics Teaching

All pupils are taught in mixed ability forms in year 7 and year 8. From year 9 to year 11 students are set according to their ability and movement occurs between sets as appropriate during an academic year.

At GCSE we follow the Edexcel linear course.

Mathematics at A level continues to be the most popular subject choice in the school, with approximately 180 students taking it across Year 12 and 13 currently.

At A Level we follow the Edexcel course for both Mathematics and Further Mathematics.

Further Mathematics is offered in a separate class with approximately 40 students studying the qualification across Year 12 and 13. Most students follow the path of Further Mechanics and Further Statistics studies for the option blocks.


Extra Curricular

We seek to provide extracurricular opportunities for pupils to engage with mathematics and numeracy at all levels. Able students in all year groups have the opportunity to take part in UKMT National Mathematics Challenge competitions, and team maths challenges for years 8-9 and 11-13. There is a locally run team event for Year 10 that we regularly send two team to.

We regularly visit the Maths in Action lectures at the Institute of Education. We seek to invite external organisations and speakers into school to engage and motivate our students. We have good mathematical links with our local primary schools and regularly provide opportunities for our sixth formers to work with primary school children of all ages.
