Subject Overview
Key Stage 3
In KS3, each year is split into discrete topic areas:

Unit 1: Area and Perimeter (with Place Value & Four Operations)
Unit 2: Probability (with Fractions & Percentages)
Unit 3: Sequences, Graphs & Transformations
Unit 4: Angles and Lines
Unit 5: Money Matters (Decimals, Finance & Negatives) 
Unit 6: Properties of Shape
Unit 7: Factors, Multiples, Primes and Indices
Unit 8: Statistics & Data Handling 
Unit 9: Fractions and Percentages
Unit 10: Ratio, Proportion and Measures
Unit 11: Basic Algebra 

Pupils cycle through each topic area, gaining in-depth knowledge and understanding with a mastery focus on gaining confidence in each aspect’s basic skills before moving-on to more challenging areas.

Key Stage 4
In KS4, while the same topic areas are covered as in KS3, there is a greater appreciation of how the topics relate to one another.

Pupils study topics discretely and then in conjunction in order to secure a strong understanding and enable them to apply their knowledge to problem solving involving multiple topic areas in preparation for GCSE exams.

The aims of the GCSE Maths course are to:
> Develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
> Acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
> Reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
> Comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context
