Mathematics Curriculum

Our mathematics curriculum is designed to ensure that all pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, can reason mathematically and can solve problems by applying their knowledge to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication. The curriculum is also designed to teach acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.


Homework will support the examination skills that pupils will need to achieve their National Curriculum target. Homework is designed to support the lesson during the week and is recorded weekly in planners.

  • Mrs. Speer runs a Homework club on a Thursday lunchtime. Pupils can use Mathswatch for revision. Login details can be found in student planners.
  • Year 10 set weekly on Friday.
  • Year 11 set weekly on Wednesday.
