Key Stage 3

Throughout Key Stage 3 students build on their attainment in mathematics from Primary School. We follow Schemes of Learning based on the new National Curriculum which was introduced in September 2014.

Three strands which run through all of Key Stage 3 are that pupils are expected to:

a) Develop fluency
b) Reason mathematically
c) Solve problems

Students are taught the skills above through mathematics content under the broad headings listed below:

1) Number
2) Algebra
3) Ratio, proportion and rates of change
4) Number
5) Algebra
6) Number

Students are taught in ability groups throughout Key Stage 3 and the pace and content of lessons is tailored to meet individual needs.

Further details of the content and order of topics for each year/set can be found below.

Homework is generally set weekly and may take a variety of forms e.g. worksheets or activities to consolidate or assess understanding, research or preparation for future lessons and revision for exams.
