2.        Curriculum, staffing and resources

The successful candidate will be part of a strong team of 13 staff.

Mathematics is taught in seven purpose built rooms, each incorporating an interactive whiteboard and data projector. In addition to the head of department and second in department there are raising achievement leaders across Key Stages.

In Years 7, 8 and 9, students are taught in a mixed ability setting. To help students in Year 8 who are not quite secondary ready we also have the facility for them to join one of three smaller groups who follow the same syllabus but with more support.

In Years 10 and 11 we have been successful with having two higher-tier classes whilst retaining mixed ability parallel groups. This allows us to manage the curriculum split whilst still enjoying the benefits to all ability levels of mixed ability teaching. 

At Key Stage 5, 47% of all students in the sixth form study A level mathematics and follow the Edexcel A level course.
