About the Faculty
The Mathematics Faculty is a caring and committed team of staff who teach the full ability range from Year 7 to Advanced levels. We have high expectations of all students and provide both fast track opportunities for the mathematically gifted and a supportive environment for those who find Mathematics difficult. We also have a team of numeracy mentors who provide targeted support for those students with additional needs in Mathematics. The Mathematics Faculty is located on the ground floor of the Newman Building and consists of seven classrooms each with interactive whiteboard facilities. Included in these rooms is one maths computer room with fifteen networked computers and access to fifteen wireless netbooks.
At KS3 all students follow a structured mathematics curriculum which covers all of the requirements of the National Curriculum. Students are set by ability within the first two weeks of Year 7 and regular assessments are made throughout Years 7 and 8 to monitor progress.
Key Stage 4 (Years 10-11)
Since September 2011, all students in years 9, 10 and 11 follow the Edexcel Mathematics GCSE course. This course comprises three modular exams (sat periodically through Year 9, 10 and 11) of increasing difficulty. Some students have the additional opportunity of studying GCSE Statistics in Year 10.
Key Stage 5 (Post-16)
Sixth form students are able to study both AS and A2 Mathematics and Further Mathematics within school.
