We believe Mathematics is essential for everyday life and understanding our world. It is also essential to Science, Technology and Engineering, and advances in these fields on which our economic future depends. It is therefore fundamentally important to ensure that all pupils have the best possible mathematics education. To achieve this, our Maths curriculum empowers students to fully understand the mathematics they learn so they can be creative in solving problems, as well as being confident and fluent in developing, and using, the mathematical skills so valued in the world of industry and higher education.
The Mathematics curriculum covers more than just the basic calculations. Students, according to ability, will learn important topics including statistics, fractions, percentages and probability, formulae, algebra and analysing data. There are maths workshops available after school for students who want to improve skills. Learn about the Maths curriculum and how homework is set below:
Year 7
Term 1 
While our Maths Curriculum is designed to be demanding and challenging for all our students, we want them to enjoy Mathematics and see its value in the world in which we live as well. In this term we work on the following modules:

Homework: Students will normally be set two homeworks each week. One of these will usually be a “finishing off task” and the other will be a longer piece relating to the work being covered in class. 
How to help: As we start each of the modules above, the students will have a target sheet stuck in their books. This will set out the specific skills that will be covered during the module. Approximately one week before the module test, they will be given a practice test, and they will be asked to “traffic light” the skills on the target sheet in their books. This should get them focused on the skills that they need to improve on in the revision period leading up to the test.
Maths Workshop is available on Tuesdays after school in S13 for any student who wants to do extra work, get some help with homework or to improve a specific skill.

Year 11
Term 1 
We currently use the Edexcel 1MAO Specification.The focus in Set 1 is to finish as many of the remaining topics on the syllabus as possible before the mock exams in December. The other groups focus on the remaining topics on the syllabus that they can easily pick up marks on.
Throughout Year 11 we do a practice paper every two weeks. This is then teacher marked and students are then set three areas for improvement. These will be worked on before the next paper is sat two weeks later. 
Homework: Homework is set twice a week and usually consists of exam practice questions. 
How to help: Please ask your daughter/son how they are doing with the past papers and ask to see their record sheet which will show the progress that they are making towards their target grade.
The students will all be given a MATHSWATCH CD which contains video clip demonstrations of all of the topics on the GCSE paper and also some very useful worksheets, with answers so that they can test their knowledge on any topic. Maths Workshop is available after school on Tuesdays throughout the year and there will be revision classes on a Tuesday after school from January until the exams have been completed.
