At Bristol Metropolitan Academy we adopt principles and methods that facilitate outstanding learning in mathematics. We believe that understanding is the foundation on which quality learning in the subject rests as it promotes the transferral of mathematical skills through problem solving. A variety of teaching methods, personalised learning experiences and enrichment opportunities are utilised in order that students become independent and confident mathematicians who fulfil their potential.
Key Stage 3
The Scheme of Work that students follow in KS3 is organised by Level to build in progression year by year. Year 7 students start with a program of investigative and creative maths projects to develop an interest in the subject as well as to allow teachers to assess ability.
Key Stage 4
KS4 students follow a course of study that prepares them for GCSE examination.
