Year 7

Students follow a broad curriculum in the traditional subjects of English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Modern Foreign Languages, IT, Physical Education. Students are set by ability in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science.

Maths

In Year 7 we follow Mathematics Mastery, a programme which empowers and equips teachers to improve students' enjoyment, resilience, understanding and attainment in Maths. It is based upon the following principles: 

  • Studying fewer topics in greater depth
  • Mastery for all students (ability is not innate and is increased through effort)
  • Number sense and place value come first
  • Problem solving is central
