About Us


The mathematics course of study is a five-year spiral curriculum in which students see the same topics throughout their school career, with each encounter increasing in complexity and reinforcing previous learning.  The curriculum design aims to ensure that all students become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics and develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. They will be able to reason, interpret and communicate mathematically using mathematical language and furthermore, solve problems by applying mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems within mathematics and in other contexts.

Studying mathematics gives the critical ability to learn and think logically in any field of endeavour.  It produces citizens who can learn and think creatively and critically, no matter their career fields.  It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. 

The mathematics curriculum provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, the capacity to solve problems, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

Courses: GCSE Mathematics (including at Post 16 for those students not yet at Grade 4), A level Mathematics, Level 3 Certificate in Mathematical Studies
