Key Stage 3

Starting with the four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division – the path toward abstract problem-solving begins here. At the same time as students increase their fluency with the language of the subject, they gradually develop confidence in using mathematics to tackle a variety of challenges from across the discipline.

Whilst the programme varies according to the ability of the student, the syllabus below is representative of the mathematics covered in the first two years at the College.

Key Stage 4

The foundation tier of GCSE Mathematics (grades C-G) provides an emphasis on the essentials of the subject, along with an introduction to problem-solving in practical situations. The higher tier (grades A*-C) develops a wider and more abstract repertoire. At this level students encounter demanding areas of the subject and use their abilities to solve problems of greater complexity.

An outline of each syllabus is given below. Note that Year 9 students follow a course designed both to stimulate interest and provide a firm basis for GCSE. Further details are available in the relevant schemes of work.
