We have high expectations that every student masters the key mathematical content relevant to their age, by ensuring that they receive the right level of support and challenge.

The mathematics teaching team is led and managed by an Assistant Principal and there are a range of TLR responsibilities for the quality of teaching and standards in Years 7-13.

New leadership in mathematics has prioritised the quality of teaching and learning and as a result, outcomes substantially improved in 2016: 68% of students achieved an A*-C grade and 73% of students made expected progress (and 30% better than expected progress). In 2017 attainment stayed broadly similar.
There is a firm foundation in place. The team now seek additional skilful practitioners with the commitment and drive to join them in their pursuit of excellence for all.

Students have four 1 hour lessons each week and follow a 5-year curriculum programme that reflects high expectations for every young person. Inclusive learning is supported by effective differentiation with appropriate challenge for all and support for learning. Depth is prioritised before breadth and the curriculum programme is designed to enable students to study fewer topics each term in order to deepen understanding. This also enables concepts to be sequenced so that methods previously learned can be connected to new learning and applied in a variety of different contexts.
