Mathematics at Rooks Heath
The aim of the Maths Department is to make Mathematics as accessible and enjoyable as possible for every student regardless of academic ability. We want every child to fulfil his or her mathematical potential. In order to achieve this we strive to make our lessons as inspiring as possible through the use of "Active Learning" strategies. We try to highlight the relevance of Mathematics in everyday life and we aim to provide teaching that is committed to the students and their individual needs.
The Mathematics Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum at Rooks Heath extends all the way from Year 7 through to Year 13. With the exception of Year 7, all students are taught Mathematics in sets based on ability. Sets are reviewed regularly and changes made as required. Students in KS3 follow the a curriculum tailored to meet their needs which follows the National Strategy. Students in KS4 study for their GCSE in Mathematics leading to a final examination at the end of Year 11. Students in top sets are also entered for the AQA Level 2 Further Maths course. Students in the 6th form usually complete the A level in Mathematics by studying 6 modules over two years. Further Maths has also been available since September 2013.
