Pupils will learn to apply their mathematics to a variety problems

KS3 Mathematics

At Key Stage 3 we follow a broad curriculum looking at a variety of key skills from Number, Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Probability, Ratio and Proportion in order to develop fluency. A particular emphasis is placed on raising the profile of Mathematics and Numeracy in order to stimulate confidence and engagement. This is done by embracing Research Based Learning; exploration of applications of Mathematics, problem solving activities and strategy.

GCSE Mathematics

Examination Board: Edexcel

The aims of the course encourage pupils to develop confidence in, and a positive attitude towards, Mathematics and to recognise the importance of Mathematics in their own lives and to society. This qualification prepares pupils to make informed decisions about the use of technology, the management of money, further learning opportunities and career choices. The new GCSE specification (9-1) includes (briefly): Number, Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Probability, Ratio and Proportion, Problem Solving and Mathematical Reasoning.

A Level Mathematics

Examination Board: Edexcel

A-level Mathematics provides pupils with a thorough grounding in the mathematical tools and techniques often needed in the workplace. The logic and reasoning skills developed ensure the qualification is widely respected. The recent changes to AS and A-level Mathematics qualifications represent the biggest in a generation.

The content of A-Level Mathematics is (briefly): Proof, Algebra and functions, Coordinate geometry, Sequences and series, Trigonometry, Exponentials and logarithms, Differentiation, Integration, Numerical methods, Vectors, Quantities and units in mechanics, Kinematics, Forces and Newton’s laws, Moments, Statistical sampling, Data presentation and Interpretation, Probability, Statistical distributions, Statistical hypothesis testing.

Encourage pupils to recognise the importance of Mathematics in their own lives and to society.

A Level Further Mathematics

Examination Board: Edexcel

A-level Further Mathematics is designed to broaden and deepen the mathematical knowledge and skills developed when studying A-level Mathematics. A-Levels in both subjects would be ideal for those wishing to go on to study (but not limited to) Mathematics, Accountancy, Physics and Engineering based degrees.

The content of A-Level Further Mathematics is (briefly): Proof, Complex numbers, Matrices, Further Algebra and Functions, Further Calculus, Further Vectors, Polar coordinates, Hyperbolic functions, Differential equations, Trigonometry, Coordinate geometry, and the content from two of the three applied fields Discrete Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics.

Pupils will learn how to reason mathematically and develop understanding relationships between different strands of mathematics
