Maths - Key Stage 3

The new Mathematics Curriculum for 2014 forms the basis for teaching in Key Stage 3. Since September 2014 all pupils in Years 7 and 8 have been following the Oxford University Press recommended ‘MyMaths’ text books and associated schemes of work, appropriate to ability sets, which follow the new National Curriculum.

Our Aim

The aim of the Maths Department is to make learning a very positive and fun experience allowing pupils to develop the skills and depth of knowledge which will lead to an inbuilt confidence in their own mathematical ability.

Ability Sets

In Years 7 and 8 pupils continue to be taught in ability sets. When possible, pupils are split into a larger number of sets in KS3. The process of assessing and reviewing set position continues each half term.
