A Brief Introduction to the Maths Department

Here at The Telford Priory School our Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8) follow a vibrant curriculum which encompasses the new 2014 national curriculum.  We approach each unit of work with the expectation that students will make the best progress possible.  Our team works dynamically to establish prior knowledge, deliver challenging lessons and use assessment to build confident mathematicians who are prepared for the challenges of Key Stage 4 and beyond.

Mathematics curriculum for KS4

Students in KS4 will study for a Mathematics GCSE covering the topics of:

• Number

• Algebra

• Ratio, proportion and rates of change

• Geometry and measures

• Probability

• Statistics

GCSE Mathematics has a Foundation tier (grades 1 – 5) and a higher tier (grades 4 – 9).  Students must take three question papers at the same tier.  One paper is taken without a calculator; the other two are taken with the use of a calculator.

Extra-curricular provision

Pupils are asked to attend intervention on various nights of the week for extra study or revision to consolidate or extend their learning.
