Mathematics Department information
The Mathematics Department consists of a Head of Department and seven other teachers. The subject is taught in groups divided according to ability up to IGCSE.
The Mathematics Department fosters a ‘Can-do’ attitude among our pupils; we are proud of our students, and keen that they receive the best possible mathematical education and achieve the best results that they can. We are looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic graduate who would be able to teach from KS3 to A-level, with the ability to teach Further Mathematics being an advantage.
Each teacher is equipped with a Microsoft surface device, which facilitates a range of applications for the teaching of Mathematics and which complements our traditional and structured approach to teaching and learning.
For the past several years our girls have taken part in the Junior, Intermediate and Senior UK Mathematics Challenge. Many have achieved gold, silver and bronze awards. Relevant year groups also have an opportunity to take part in team Maths challenges, as well as attending lectures run by the RI and FMSP.
We follow the Edexcel Higher IGCSE course. Our most able students in Year 10 and 11 are entered for Further Mathematics (AQA) and we take Edexcel A level for Maths and Further Maths. Mathematics is the most popular subject in the VIth form and the number choosing to take Further Mathematics at A level is also consistently high, with the department invariable producing excellent examination results.
