We follow a 5 year framework for Teaching Mathematics with a strong mastery approach directly aligned to the White Rose scheme of learning and the GCSE 1ma1 scheme. In accordance with the National Strategy we aim to develop both mental and written mathematical skills. Our scheme mirrors the requirements of the new 1-9 national curriculum and includes number and algebra, geometry and measures, statistics together with mathematical processes and applications. Students are regularly assessed on their learning which informs their next steps.

‘We regularly enter students for the UKMT Mathematical Challenges at Junior and Intermediate level as well as the regional Team Mathematics Challenges.
In maths lessons you will need to have a pen, pencil and rubber together with mathematical drawing instruments (e.g. compass, ruler and protractor). We expect all students to bring and use a scientific calculator and this is essential for two of the examinations papers.
The school has mathematical equipment and calculators for sale and these can be purchased from any maths teacher. Scientific calculators are priced at £10.
