"Life in all its fullness"



The Mathematics department aims to build on the skills that students have acquired at primary level and to develop individuals’ mathematical ability progressively.

At Key Stage 3, as well as teaching fundamental techniques, there is a focus on developing logical thinking, problem-solving ability and an understanding of how Mathematics relates to everyday life.

In Years 10 and 11, lessons will cover the work required for the various areas of GCSE examination and will relate as much as possible to everyday life and support work in other subjects.

For further information please see our KS4 Options Booklet 2024

Further information about the GCSE Maths exam structure and specification can be found here. The following Revision Guides have proved popular with our students: Higher, Foundation and Crossover


At A Level, Mathematics has three major over-arching themes (mathematical argument, language and proof, mathematical problem solving and mathematical modelling). Three branches of mathematics are studied and assessed: Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics.
