Key Stages and Curriculum Maps
We are committed to equality and diversity and continue to work towards a fully inclusive curriculum.
Years 7 & 8
Starting with the four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division – the path toward abstract problem-solving begins here. At the same time as students increase their fluency with the language of the subject, they gradually develop confidence in using mathematics to tackle a variety of challenges from across the discipline.
Students build on their work in years 7 & 8 to develop their existing abilities in some areas and build a whole new set of skills in others. Preparation for Key Stage 4 is the focus here and building solid foundations to build on going forward.
The foundation tier of GCSE Mathematics (grades 1 - 5) provides an emphasis on the essentials of the subject, along with an introduction to problem-solving, especially in practical situations. The higher tier (grades 4-9) develops a wider and more abstract repertoire. At this level students encounter demanding areas of the subject and use their abilities to solve problems of greater complexity.
A-Level Mathematics offers the intellectual challenge and abstract elegance for which the subject is renowned. But a great deal more is in store for students as they encounter powerful and far-reaching applications. The course is fully examined at the end of the two years and consists of pure mathematics alongside statistics and mechanics. Mathematics naturally complements many other A-level subjects and provides an essential grounding for anyone interested in the scientific or technological world.
