The Maths Department
We are a committed, innovative and highly successful team of eight specialist mathematicians, supported by a number of other teaching staff. Our summer 2017 progress 8 score of +0.47, combined with 85% of our students attaining a Grade 4 or above, makes us the highest-performing Maths department in the city of York as well as placing us in the top 15% of schools nationally. The department occupies five full sized classrooms plus a seminar room for smaller groups, all equipped with PCs and projectors. We share a workroom, which becomes a place for the team to congregate during breaks, fostering an extremely supportive, constructive and friendly atmosphere. Several of the Maths team have other roles within the school including an Assistant Principle, a Head of Year and two Teaching and Learning group leaders. The extra skills and expertise that these colleagues bring to the department help the whole team to develop and grow as excellent Maths teachers.
In Key Stage 3, all students follow a varied Mathematics curriculum covering a wide of Number, Algebra, Geometry, Ratio and Data topics. The GCSE curriculum starts in Year 9 and follows five distinct pathways based on mathematical ability, each leading to the final Edexcel 9-1 GCSE exams. The most-able students also study the AQA Further Maths course alongside their normal GCSE. As a team we are looking to continually deepen our students’ understanding of the subject and to improve our delivery of the course through sharing best practice and continued professional development. All members of the team have the opportunity to develop their own practice through attending outside training courses, undertaking in-house training and through discussion and collaboration with one another. We encourage this collaboration with an open-door policy and with our use of peer-walkthroughs so that every member of the team has the chance to observe each other in action. Our curriculum is continually developing and improving. It is carefully structured and well-resourced, yet allows staff freedom to follow their passions, preferences and professional instincts in the classroom. Learning is at the heart of everything we do and we believe that high-quality maths teaching is the key to achieving the best outcomes for our students.
