At KS3 all students follow a structured mathematics curriculum, which covers all of the requirements of the National Curriculum. Students are set by ability within the first two weeks of Year 7 and regular assessments are made throughout Years 7 and 8 to monitor progress.

There is a range of careers that you could progress into. These include:
Sixth form students are able to study both AS and A2 Mathematics and Further Mathematics within school.
