Key Stage 3

Mathematics

Mathematics is taught using a variety of resources and approaches in order to reinforce basic number skills and arithmetic and broaden students’ knowledge in Mathematics.  All students in year 7 and year 8 will be following the National Curriculum, with a focus on number and algebra in year 7.   In addition, students will begin to meet the new, more challenging topics that have recently been introduced to GCSE Mathematics. Students will develop organisational skills and problem-solving strategies, with an emphasis on breadth of understanding and application of knowledge.
