Much of our everyday lives and work has Mathematics at its heart. It encompasses applying mathematical techniques to routine procedures, problem solving, presenting arguments which may be justified by proofs alongside interpreting solutions in the context of the problem at hand.
In Maths, we aspire to provide an expertly devised curriculum that enables students to develop an enquiring mind and a fluent knowledge of the Mathematics they will need to apply in order to tackle and solve problems in their education, their future life.
In particular, the intent is to enable students to acquire:
To allow students to develop:
To give them the ability to:
Additionally we offer chances for enrichment through lunchtime clubs, external group competitions as well as individual challenges which are conducted internationally. We offer a regular lunchtime help club where students of all ages and abilities are encouraged to seek any support or help with individual questions or topic areas. Students are strongly encouraged to use Dr. Frost Maths for homework, revision and recap.
In Key Stage 3 pupils follow the programs of study prescribed by the National Curriculum. They learn new techniques in each of the set areas of Number & Measure, Geometry, Algebra, Statistics, Probability, Ratio and proportion and Rates of Change and apply these to problems. We challenge and extend their thinking often going beyond that set out below. The pupils are encouraged to explain their thinking and to set this down on paper. They meet simple proofs and are encouraged to develop their talents of reasoning, interpretation and problem solving in the context of real life problems. More detail as to the content is set out below.

In Key Stage 4 students follow the prescribed National Curriculum which is assessed by Edexcel Examination Board. Students are entered for either Higher Level leading to grades 4 – 9 or Foundation level leading to grades 1 – 5. The vast majority of the course builds upon and extends the skills learned at KS3, but students do encounter and develop new areas of mathematics. Particular emphasis is to be able to confidently:
Assessment is by three separate 1 ½ hour written examinations at the end of the course. Paper 1 is noncalculator and Papers 2 & 3 require the use of a scientific calculator. The three papers are equally weighted. Those topic areas which are totally new to the tiers of entry are:

Students who opt to study either Mathematics or Further Mathematics follow the Edexcel syllabus for both. These exciting subjects extend the knowledge and reasoning acquired thus far and challenge the students’ application and evaluation to a greater and much deeper level. The A level Mathematics course builds upon the three areas of Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics. The students will expand their knowledge of: Proof Algebra and functions Coordinate geometry in the (x,y) plane Sequences and Series Trigonometry Exponentials and Logarithms Differentiation Integration Vectors Quantities and units in mechanics Kinematics Forces and Newton’s laws Moments Statistical Sampling Data presentation and interpretation Probability Statistical Distributions Statistical Hypotheses Testing Assessment is by three 2hour examination papers at the end of the course. In Further Mathematics the students will delve into a wide array of topic areas, some of which build upon the base of ALevel Mathematics and some of which are completely new. They will meet: Complex numbers Series Volumes of Revolution Proof Matrices Further Algebra and Functions Further Calculus Further Vectors Polar Coordinates Hyperbolic Functions Differential Equations Further Trigonometry Conics Differential Methods Numerical Methods Momentum and Impulse Work, Energy and Power Elastic springs and strings Elastic collisions Assessment is by four 1 ½hour examination papers at the end of the course. Exam Board: For A level Mathematics the Exam board is Edexcel. The subject code is 9MA0. For A level Further Mathematics the exam board is also Edexcel. The subject code is 9FM0.
