Mathematics: Mission statement
To develop an appreciation of the intrinsic delights and application of Mathematics in the real world Department introduction / welcome
Key Stage 3
Mathematics offers students the opportunities to consolidate and extend their mathematical skills using a wide range of resources. Students are encouraged to stretch the limits of their understanding to ensure the high expectation of their progress is exceeded. This should give students a solid platform for the work they do in the following two Key Stages.
Key Stage 4
Students have the opportunity to build on the excellent foundation provided in Key Stage 3 and tackle with confidence the whole Mathematical syllabus. Most Students achieve A* or A grades at GCSE and also take Statistics as an additional GCSE. The coursework for statistics involves new areas of Mathematics not covered previously.
Key Stage 5
Both Mathematics and Further Mathematics provide opportunities for learners to enjoy acquiring disciplined logical thinking skills which are, then, applied across a wide range of modelled situations in the Arts and Sciences. The courses prepare students to develop theory independently and provide a firm basis for future study at degree level and beyond.
