Subject Intent

The purpose of Mathematics is to develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of key skills and concepts in order to apply these confidently, not only in mathematical contexts, but also across other areas of the curriculum, in further education and in employment. Mathematics is a highly interconnected subject that is constantly building on prior knowledge and understanding to further develop skills.


The aims of the curriculum is to ensure that students can identify and apply these connections in order to make more mathematical skills accessible to all. The core values of the curriculum are to develop fluency, reasoning and problem solving across all areas of maths. In doing this, students will establish transferable skills which they will use during key stages 3 and 4 and will empower them for further education and gainful employment. Across the five years students will study and evolve skills in

• Number

• Algebra

• Ratio, proportion and rates of change

• Geometry and measures

• Probability

• Statistics


Our Mathematics curriculum is designed to build a strong foundational mathematical knowledge at Key Stage 3, building on prior knowledge acquired at Key Stage 2. Students follow a scheme of learning which provides an ambitious, connected curriculum accessible to all pupils. We strive to secure the core aspects of mathematics; building mathematicians who are confident, fluent and flexible in the way they encounter and explore mathematical concepts. Students will be supported and encouraged to develop a deeper, relational understanding of mathematical knowledge to equip them with the skills required to fully engage with curriculum content.

At Key Stage 4 our aim is to further build on the strong mathematical schema developed in Key Stage 3. In Key Stage 4 students will continue to develop deep mathematical threads though more complex topics, using their strong foundational understanding from Key Stage 3. At the end of KS4 students will complete an exam at foundation or higher tier.
