Mathematics is a highly interconnected discipline of knowledge, ideas and concepts; developed over the centuries and fundamental to understanding the world around us.  It is essential to everyday life; critical to science, technology and engineering; and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. Studying mathematics promotes enquiry, curiosity and questioning of information; it develops a logical approach to solving problems; and it develops the critical thinking skills essential across all walks of life. 

Ambition for our pupils

The Mathematics curriculum is designed to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge;
  • can reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships, and developing an argument or proof using mathematical language;
  • are able to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication.

Structure of our curriculum

All pupils study Mathematics at key stage 3 and 4. The programme of study is organised into apparently distinct topics, but pupils will develop and consolidate connections across mathematical ideas. Pupils learn to apply arithmetic fluently to problems; understand and use measures; make estimates and sense check their work; identify proportional relationships between variables; apply geometric and algebraic understanding; relate an understanding of probability to the notions of risk and uncertainty; understand the cycle of collecting, presenting and analysing data; and communicate and reason mathematically.
