Maths is for everyone. It is diverse, engaging and essential in equipping students with the right skills to reach their future destination, whatever that may be.

If you are to stop and think for just a few minutes it becomes inescapably clear that mathematics is pretty well inseparable from life as we know it.

 

Lower School

In the lower school we follow the English National Curriculum KS3 Programme of Study (KS3 POS), which is available at:

www.gov.uk/government/publications/nationalcurriculum-in-england-mathematics-programmes-of-study

 

We use the new Discovering Mathematics maths course from Oxford University Press that brings the renowned Singaporean secondary series to the English Key Stage 3 National Curriculum.

  • Adapted by the original Singaporean author team in conjunction with a large team of UK mastery experts and teachers
  • Draws upon a proven approach to raising maths achievement, built around the ‘growth mindset’ that every child can succeed
  • Focus on problem-solving as the ultimate objective of maths education
  • Precise use of mathematical language

 

Middle School – AQA GCSE Mathematics (8300)

In class 4 and 5 Mathematics is compulsory.

You will follow the AQA GCSE Higher Tier Specification (8300). The AQA Examination Board are an independent education charity, monitored and quality assured by the Ministry of Education in England. They are the largest provider of academic qualifications for all abilities taught in schools and colleges in England. The subject content of this specification matches that set out in the Department for Education’s mathematics GCSE subject content and assessment objectives document. This content is common to all exam boards.

The AQA GCSE Mathematics provides excellent and essential preparation for the AQA A-level Mathematics and Further mathematics.

  • The minimum entry requirement for A-Level Mathematics is Grade 6.
  • The minimum entry requirement for A-Level Further Mathematics is Grade 7.

 

A-Level mathematics and Further Mathematics are two of the facilitating subjects that allows access to many courses at leading universities. It is essential or strongly recommended  for most degrees.

 

Middle School – AQA GCSE Statistics (8382)

In class 4 and 5 Statistics is an elective.

Statistics are everywhere around us. It allows us to make important decisions when there is uncertainty. It complements subjects such as GCSE Mathematics, Science, Geography, and Economics, and opens the door to a variety of careers – from weather forecasting to the biological science. You will find that the statistical process of asking a question, getting appropriate data, analysing and representing the data and then drawing conclusions is very similar to the process of a scientific investigation. Science uses a lot of statistics in drawing conclusions. Statistical thinking is used in:

  • measuring changes in the environment to see the effects of global warming
  • measuring changes in population patterns to see what type of housing is needed and where
  • analysing scientific experiments
  • measuring the effectiveness of different medicines to find the best and to identify side effects
  • calculating how likely it is that two people have the same DNA profile.

 

You will follow the AQA GCSE Higher Tier Specification (8382).

 

Senior School

In class 6 and 7 Mathematics is an elective.

A-level Mathematics is an excellent and often essential choice for students considering higher education in any science or maths-based course, ranging from Biochemical Sciences, Natural Sciences, Engineering, Medical Science, Economics, Accountancy, Management and Actuarial Science.

 

A-level Further Mathematics is an essential choice for students considering higher education in any maths-based course, ranging from Physics and Computer Science, to Economics and Actuarial Science.

 

If you study further maths, it will boost your marks in Maths and Physics and help prepare you to study a maths-based course at university.

You must study maths in order to take further maths!!!!!!

 

The best reasons for studying Further Mathematics is its excitement and topicality; the intellectual stimulation; the sheer beauty of some of the concepts; its usefulness to humanity; and …

  • A-LEVEL MATHEMATICS 7357 by AQA
  • A-LEVEL FURTHER MATHEMATICS 7367 by AQA

Who is AQA?

AQA is an independent education charity and the largest provider of academic qualifications taught in schools and colleges.

  • Set and mark the papers for around half of all GCSEs and A-levels taken every year.
  • Mark more than 7 million exam scripts every year.
  • Qualifications are internationally recognised and are taught in more than 30 countries around the world.
  • Support international schools by sharing UK best practice and teaching approaches.

 

Why AQA Maths?

Maths is essential for many higher education courses and careers. AQA has worked closely with higher education to ensure this qualification gives students the best possible chance to progress and realise their potential.

Assessment design that rewards understanding

Students see the links between different areas of maths and apply their maths skills across all areas. Consistent assessment is essential, which is why AQA has worked hard to ensure their  papers are clear and reward students for their mathematical skills and knowledge.

 

Why AQA Further Maths?

  • AQA brought higher education representatives and teachers together at the start of development for a truly collaborative process that puts students at the heart of the qualification.
  • AQA Further Maths is diverse, engaging and essential in equipping students with the right skills to reach their future destination, whatever that may be.
  • Higher education partners told AQA that they value a solid understanding of pure mathematics, which is why they have decided to include more pure content in the Further Maths qualifications.
  • AQA has worked with a range of universities – and not just maths departments, so that AQA qualifications work for all students. In particular, AQA Further Maths is essential for students planning to study Mathematics, Physics, Computing, Engineering and Economics at University.
