Statistics

Statistics is now an option subject at GCSE. The GCSE Statistics qualification develops skills that students will use in other subjects such as science and geography, and reinforces techniques needed for GCSE maths as well as supporting progression to A level maths. Real-life scenarios capture interest and give an insight into the importance of statistics in the real world.

Our ethos involves working with all learners to be the best they can be and faculty teachers working together as a team to achieve the best for our students. We greatly value the support that parents and carers give to our students and welcome all feedback.

Enrichment

DSC_1303 (Large)The mathematics department has an extensive enrichment programme. Outside of lessons we enter students from all year groups into the UKMT maths challenge that is a nationwide mathematics competition. In addition to this, girls in the 6th form can enter the Maths Olympiad for Girls (MOG).  Year 10 students get the opportunity to attend the Advanced Maths Support Programme Maths Feast event. Year 7 and Year 8 have a weekly after school maths club that is very well attended. We have a maths challenge within school as part of the house competition system where all year groups can enter to compete for their house. Inside the classroom we offer the top sets in Year 11 the opportunity to study A Level 3 Further Maths qualification alongside their GCSE studies as well as having a strong uptake of A-level Further Mathematics in sixth form. Weekly revision for Year 11 and A level students is offered from October half term onwards with Statistics GCSE sessions to follow later in the year.
