Our curriculum and teaching approach places ‘problem solving’ at the heart of teaching Mathematics.
Conceptual understanding is key. Our lessons focus on small step learning which also encourages deeper understanding. Concepts are not rushed but understood clearly and built upon.
Students must be able to use proper mathematical language and terminology as well as speak and write in full sentences.
Developing independent thinking skills. We aspire for all our students to be able to work on their concepts actively and independently and not just expect to follow step by step procedures and learn passively.
The students apply skills these in the six different topics areas that are taught throughout KS3 and KS4 which are:
- Ratio and Proportion
