Key Stage 3

At Key Stage 3: Students will be taught a range of skills in the four areas of number, algebra, shape and space and data handling. They will increase their fluency in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. They will be taught to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language. Students will also develop their problem solving skills by applying mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions

Key Stage 4

At GCSE Level:  There are two GCSE courses being taught this year due to national changes to the Mathematics GCSE. Students in Year 11 will complete the Edexcel GCSE course.  This qualification consists of two equally-weighted written examinations, each of length 1 hour 45 minutes. For current Year 10 students the new GCSE qualification consists of three equally-weighted written examination papers, each of length 1 hour 30 minutes. The link below gives further information on both courses.
