Mathematics Careers



  • We use a spiral curriculum that increases in difficulty and depth from Year 7 to Year 13.
  • At the end of Year 11, students will be entered for Edexcel GCSE Mathematics.
  • The pace and delivery of the curriculum will be adapted to suit the needs of the learners but please see an overall road map for a majority of our learners.

 How can I support my child?

  • Help get them organised – equipment, books, timetable etc.
  • Remind them to use their planner.
  • Ask them if they have any homework and what they have done that day in Maths.
  • Show an interest in their work, sometimes the best way to learn a subject is to teach it to someone else.
  • Remind them that everyone can get better at Maths and the harder they work, the better they will become.

How can I support my child with their Maths studies? 

  • Refer them to MathsWatch or Corbett Maths for independent resources – These offer online videos and worksheets to support students. These websites can be used for support, revision or to stretch their understanding further
  • Ask to see their QLA’s which will highlight their strength and weaknesses – Ask them, “What do you need to do to improve?”
  • Ask to see their work from their Maths lesson – Follow this up by asking what they found easy and what they found difficult.
  • Ask to see their end of Unit assessments. These will be a clear indicator of how they are doing in class.
  • While looking at their Maths work, ask them where they will see this Mathematics in real life.
