Led by Tracy Hardy, the 20 teachers in the maths department strive to provide a curriculum that enables all students to achieve their full potential through challenging, engaging and enthusing learning opportunities. The students will study a range of topics over a 5-year curriculum; some of which will expand their knowledge from Primary School and others that will present new and exciting areas of mathematics.
All students are entered for the EDEXCEL GCSE mathematics qualification. Courses provided at Post 16 are AQA A Levels in Mathematics and Further Mathematics. The department prides itself on supporting students to develop confidence in mathematics and their ability to transfer skills across subject areas and into everyday situations.
Beyond the classroom, students are set homework once per week. Teachers encourage students to participate in national competitions such as the UK Maths Challenge and Team Challenges that involve problem solving and logical thinking skills. The maths department offers an extra-curricular Lego club where students develop, write programs and build models. This club also takes part in national Lego League competitions.
