Mathematics

Mathematics is studied by all pupils up to the end of year 11, using the Edexcel IGCSE course which is an excellent preparation for those who choose the subject in the sixth form where the OCR specifications are followed. A number of students also choose to study further mathematics at A level. Software, interactive whiteboards and mathematical websites are used in lessons to enhance classroom learning. Pupils throughout the school are invited to enter the national mathematics challenges run by UKMT with nearly 60% of our large entry gaining a gold, silver or bronze award. In addition, teams from years 8, 9, 10 and sixth form take part in a national team event annually.
