Programme of study
The department follows the Active Teach scheme of learning together with Edexcel exam board. The programme of study mainly comprises: Number, Algebra, Ratio and Proportion, Rates of change, Geometry and Measures, Probability and Statistics. The key skills we target include: Interpreting, Representing, Applying, Evaluating, Calculating, Analysing, Collaborating, Communicating, Reflecting and Problem solving.
UKMT Maths Challenge
Our students actively take part in the UKMT Maths Challenge competitions. They continuously produce commendable results which seamlessly compare with top performing pupils within the same age group, nationally. Thanks to the tremendous efforts that the students and their Math teachers: Mrs D Patel, Mr F. Chaudhry Mrs A. Rasheed and Mr O. AlamiChaoouni, keep demonstrating.
STEM for Maths
Our students are always exposed to the several STEM curricular opportunities that the academy provides. Students are always encouraged to conduct projects that help enhance their application of Mathematics. Students also actively take part in the several of the STEM related educational visits.
Our Aims
Our aims of teaching and learning Mathematics are to encourage and enable students to:
 appreciate the usefulness, effectiveness, influence and beauty of Mathematics
 recognize that mathematics permeates all aspects of our lives and the world around us
 become more confident in using Mathematics to analyse and solve problems
 develop patience, persistence and resilience when solving problems
 develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to pursue further studies in Mathematics
 develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that would enhance their employability chances.
 develop critical thinking and the ability to reflect critically upon their work and the work of others

Course Information
Mathematics is a universal language. It is a way of communicating, being able to describe, to illustrate, to interpret, to predict and to explain. It is a creative subject in which pupils have the chance to explore for themselves, and create beautiful and elegant objects, patterns and arguments. It develops the essential numerical skills that enable students to understand and interact with the modern world, the ability to think in abstract ways and solve problems.
Almost all jobs and careers require a Mathematics GCSE. The key to success in the subject is small amounts of regular practice of Mathematics. Students who make good progress are those who invest very good effort in completing both their classwork and homework promptly and sufficiently. Students who make excellent progress are those who invest extra time and effort in their independent study outside school (for example MyMaths), and also seek extra support with any topics they might find challenging.
