Mathematics

Solving Problems

Fostering perseverance and resourcefulness, girls are encouraged to solve problems through exploration and analysis, developing their ability to think logically and creatively.

The Mathematics Curriculum

Further Mathematics (A Level)

Years LVI - UVI (Sixth Form) Key Stage 5

Further Mathematics is recommended for able Mathematicians who enjoy their Mathematics and want to study each area in more detail. This course is also recommended to girls who want to study Mathematics in some form in higher education and to those thinking of applying for Mathematics, Science or ICT-based courses at Oxbridxge.

Girls must also be taking the Mathematics A Level in order to take the Further Mathematics A Level. Further Pure Mathematics explores the wider themes within Pure Mathematics as well as taking familiar concepts to a much deeper level.

Further Mathematics (IGCSE)

Years IV - V (13-16 years) Key Stage 4

Students work towards their IGCSE over three years from Years III-V. This allows each topic to be studied rigorously with additional time for revision. Learnings are related to real life problems, statistics, mechanics and pure Mathematics which involves improving algebra and trigonometry as well as introducing new ideas such a logarithms and calculus.

Mathematics (A Level)

Years LVI - UVI (Sixth Form) Key Stage 5

When opting to study Mathematics at A Level, girls have the opportunity to take Further Mathematics. This is recommended for able Mathematicians who enjoy their Mathematics and who want to study each area in greater detail.

Small class sizes and one to one support throughout the key stages is backed up by a full range of resources available on the virtual learning environment. If further support is required, students are also encouraged to attend lunchtime clinics, which run three times a week. High achievers are encouraged to broaden their experience of mathematics through extension work in lessons or preps and take part in UKMT Mathematics team challenges at both intermediate and senior level.

Mathematics (IGCSE)

Years IV - V (13-16 years) Key Stage 4

Students work towards their IGCSE over three years from Years III-V. Girls are given the opportunity to further strengthen and develop their knowledge and understanding of key mathematical concepts and techniques and apply these logically and creatively to solve increasingly complex problems.

Mathematics (Key Stage 3)

Years I - III (11-12 years) Key Stage 3

Mathematics students’ develop perseverance and resourcefulness in solving problems and are stimulated to think both logically and creatively. In Key Stage 3, courses are firmly based on the national curriculum, providing a solid foundation for future learning. Focusing on key concepts in number, algebra, shape and data, students are encouraged to make connections between different branches of mathematics and fostering a creative and questioning approach with a strong emphasis on developing problem solving skills.

Mathematics makes you think logically and I find I can now better apply problem solving to my everyday life.
