The Mathematics Curriculum Area is an extremely well-motivated and dedicated team. Each curriculum area member teaches across the age and ability range. Mathematics is taught in nine adjacent rooms on the ground floor of Block 2. All teaching rooms are equipped with ceiling data projectors and interactive whiteboards which are used extensively, along with sets of texts, calculators and practical equipment.
Mathematics is taught to all students in Years 7 to 11 in four 60 minute lessons. The number of students in each set varies, but in general would be no more than 30. Sets are adjusted at least once a year following standardised tests.
At GCSE students follow a linear GCSE course at either foundation or higher tier. There is no coursework at GCSE.
Revision classes and booster classes are a regular feature and support is available to students at all times of the day before school, as well as at lunchtimes, after school and during Lesson Zero.
