Maths at Prospect School follows the National Curriculum, which offers a broad range of Mathematical experiences. We believe in the importance of Mathematics and strive to create and allow the following for our students:
Key Stage 3
The students will be working on four main areas of study following the standards set by the national curriculum. Topics include: Averages, area, perimeter, volume, handling data, ratio, four rules, sequences, percentages, rounding & estimation.
We operate a three-year rolling cycle focussing on the content of the National Curriculum. Approaching the curriculum in this way allows us to best meet the student’s needs. This ensures that at whatever stage they are at or if students have missed some education students will be able to quickly settle into their studies.
Key Stage 4
We offer a two-year program of study for KS4 mainly focused on GCSE, however for some students we also offer Functional Skills Maths. Topics include but are not limited to: Averages, area, perimeter, volume, handling data, ratio, four rules, Pythagoras, sequences, percentages, equations & inequalities.
These topics are more developed and take the processes and applications further than in KS3 allowing the students to reach their full potential. Students have the opportunity to study at either higher or foundation level.
Homework can be provided to students who show a willingness and enthusiasm to develop their Mathematics skills independently, however it is not compulsory. We also offer students a chance to stay after school for 1:1 tuition, to help further develop their ability and knowledge in preparation for their qualifications.
