As of next year students will follow a maths mastery programme that ensures all students have a deep understanding of the foundations of mathematics. The 6 overarching topics are; place value, multiplication and division, proportional reasoning, fractions, algebra and geometry. Students will be expected to use their acquired knowledge and skills to solve complex problems that will appear throughout the curriculum.
Students in year 8 will build on their strong foundations as well as starting some completely new topics, such as construction and transformations. By the end of the year students will have covered all of the KS3 material and have been introduced to some key GCSE topics, including simultaneous equations.
