Mathematics is one of the core subjects both in school and in life. We need Mathematics to survive! Just doing the basic essentials is dependent on your ability to do Mathematics – to tell the time, to go shopping, to travel the world, to succeed in sports etc. In the Mathematics department we aim to provide all pupils with the necessary mathematical skills which they will need in their everyday lives and future careers.
Key Stage 3
Pupils in Years 8, 9 and 10 follow the Revised Curriculum for Mathematics and Numeracy which includes the element of Financial Capability. Pupils have the opportunity to develop skills in a range of areas including mental arithmetic, problem solving, logical reasoning, managing information, communication and working with others.
Key Stage 4
Pupils are entered either for CCEA GCSE Mathematics or CCEA Entry Level Mathematics. The GCSE follows a modular course, with pupils completing modules in Year 11 and Year 12. Each pupil is entered for a qualification and tier of entry which is considered to be suitable for his/her ability.
