Mathematics is for everyone. A GCSE qualification in Mathematics not only gives students the opportunity to develop the ability to acquire and use problem-solving strategies, it teaches them to be able to select and apply mathematical techniques to solve every day and real-world situations. The abilities to reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, draw conclusions and interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms are also developed.

The new GCSE’s will now have an AQA numbered grading system in Mathematics.  The new Specification has been taught since September 2015, with the first awards in summer 2017. The content still has its focus on number, algebra, geometry, measures, statistics and probability but also allows you to apply the functional elements and problem solving strategies required to use mathematics in everyday life. The examination focus is on connection and reasoning between the topics to achieve a deeper understanding of the often complex mathematical concepts involved.

Working closely with other schools within the Harris Federation and offering our own provision we equip our student with the tools they will need to tackle these challenging styles of questions. 

We are a cross site department consisting of 21 mathematics specialists. The department is managed by the Director of Mathematics, an Assistant Principal and a Co-coordinator of Mathematics. Additionally there is a senior teacher in charge of the day to day running of each of the three key stages.

The GCSE assessment structure course consists of 3 examinations, each 1 hour 30 minutes in length. This is split into two tiers; higher tier – Grades 5 to 9, and foundation tier – Grades 1 - 5. Paper one is non-calculator, while the other two papers a calculator is allowed. There is no coursework or controlled assessment.

3 good reasons why a good grade in mathematics is so important:

A vast array of potential future careers will become available, for example:

  • Engineering, Physics, Computing, Accountancy, Economics, Business, Banking, Air traffic control, Retail management, Architecture, Surveying, Cartography, Psychology ... and many more.
  • Employers and universities see mathematics as a very desirable qualification due to the skills it employs, such as problem solving, logical thinking and statistical analysis.
  • Research shows that, on average, those people who are competent in the field of Mathematics will add 10% to their lifetime earning potential!
