“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

Everyone needs to use mathematics, particularly arithmetic, as a tool to help in everyday life and to understand more clearly the world in which we live. Simple calculation, the use of tables giving information, and the interpretation and understanding of figures and graphs will be needed by everyone throughout life. In addition, skills developed in mathematics lessons will help people to tackle new ideas and problems in a confident, logical and organised way.

Mathematics is a subject where new knowledge builds on what has been understood before. Hence, pupils are placed in sets along with others who are at a similar stage of development and ability. They will follow a 2 year Linear GCSE Maths course accredited by AQA (8300).

The course is divided into Using and Applying Mathematics, Number, Algebra, Ratio, Proportion and Rates of Change, Geometry and Measures and Probability and Statistics. Pupils will look at aspects of all of these throughout the course. The GCSE is assessed through two external exams at the end of the course. There is no controlled assessment for this course.

Level 2 Further Mathematics

In addition to GCSE Mathematics pupils in Set 1 will be offered the opportunity to study the AQA Level 2 Further Mathematics (8360) qualification.  The course consists of an introduction to AS Level topics that will help them develop skills in Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Matrices, Trigonometry, Functions and Graphs.  The qualification is assessed through two external exams at the end of the course.  There is no controlled assessment for this course.
