mathematics

Mathematics is all around us, from the in-depth calculations and programming that make up the apps on your phone to calculating your weekly shop.  Maths is for everyone. It is diverse, engaging and essential.

The Mathematics department at Les Quennevais are committed to ensuring that every learner is equipped with the right skills to reach their future destination, whatever that may be, and provide an environment where students can learn and become competent users of mathematics and mathematical application, helping students transition from concrete to abstract concepts and to develop reasoning and problem solving skills.

Throughout their time at Les Quennevais, students will be following a 5 year Mastery in Maths plan. This allows students to acquire a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject by building on prior knowledge, acquiring new skills and re-evaluating the application of their knowledge as an ongoing process.

At Key Stage 4 all learners will be following the AQA GCSE specification covering all areas of Mathematics; Number, Algebra, Geometry and Measures, Probability, Statistics, Ratio, Proportion and rates of change. This then culminates with three final exams in year 11, where ongoing support will be provided throughout using a combination of extra revision classes, provided during out of school hours, past papers, specimen papers and exemplar student answers with examiner commentaries.
