Curriculum

We follow the Pearson 5-year scheme of work, which has three learning paths, linked to key stage 2 outcomes.

At key stage 3 these are Pi, theta and delta. From students’ performance at key stage 3 these refine to foundation and higher at GCSE.

At A-level we follow the Edexcel course for both A-level Mathematics and A-level Further Mathematics.

Assessment

All students complete assessments at the end of every unit and three times a year. This enables us to monitor their progress and effectively organise intervention when necessary.

Revision Resources:

Homework for all year groups is set on ‘Show My Homework’ and is designed to support and develop the learning that is taking place in our classrooms in relation to our Schemes of Learning.  Homework is set on a weekly basis and should take 60 minutes to complete.

Additional Revision Resources:

Passwords are available from class teachers.
