KS3 maths is taught in ability sets: this means the more able children will be stretched, while children who struggle with maths will take things more slowly, and be given more support. Your child will find some of the work similar to primary school, but it will be more challenging and the children are expected to be working more independently. With all the topics the children will be studying, they’ll be developing ‘mathematical process’ skills, which include reasoning, analysis and evaluation.

Having completed the curriculum by the end of year 10, using exam analysis of key topics, the maths department create an individualised scheme of learning for year 11 pupils. Their scheme of learning focuses on the most impact, identifying topics to support problem solving in a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions
