Maths

Statement of Intent – KS3

As students arrive in Year 7, we build on key ideas from primary school and develop them further using a mastery approach.  Throughout year 7 and 8, students are encouraged to develop a deep understanding of concepts starting with the concrete, moving through pictorial representations to more abstract mathematics.  Students learn to think mathematically and discuss their learning using appropriate mathematical language so that when they solve problems they do so independently and systematically in preparation for the challenge of KS4.

Statement of Intent – KS4

Year 9 students begin the journey towards their GCSE Mathematics building on the knowledge and skills they have gained earlier.  Their year starts with some reinforcement of key skills before developing strong and secure basic algebra and number skills.  As students continue their journey in year 10, their mathematical problem solving is further developed across all aspects of GCSE content.  By the time students reach year 11, they should be resilient, able to notice links between topics, determined when faced with unfamiliar problems and ready to take on the challenge of their GCSE Mathematics exams and more in many cases.
