Key Stage 3 Curriculum:
Key Stage 3 is taught over two years, and covers all of the core topics required to prepare the learners for Key Stage 4. Topics are split into three key areas:
1) Number and Algebra
2) Geometry and Measures
Key Stage 4 Curriculum:
1) a positive attitude to Mathematics
2) an ability to think mathematically
3) a firm foundation for further study
4) skills to investigate mathematical ideas
Key Stage 5 Curriculum:
1) To enable a student to acquire further mathematical knowledge essential to Higher Education.
2) To develop the understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment.
3) To recognise how a situation may be represented mathematically and understand the relationship between "real-world problems" and other mathematical models and how these can be refined and improved.
4) To acquire skills needed to use technology such as calculators and computers effectively, recognising when such use may not be appropriate and be aware of limitations.
5) To develop an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to other fields of study, to the world of work and to society in general.
6) To take increasing responsibility for their own learning and the evaluation of their mathematical development.
7) To develop an understanding of coherence and progression in mathematics and of how different areas of mathematics can be connected.
