Students in Year 7 and 8 follow a course, which builds upon the National Curriculum in England – Mathematics Programme of study for Key stage 1 and 2. We aim to develop students’ confidence and pleasure in applying mathematical techniques, while giving them the competences and understanding to make them fully numerate citizens.
Aim is to ensure that all pupils:
Year 7 and Year 8 students are assessed fully at end of modules 2, 4 and 6. Assessments include 3 sections – calculator, non-calculator and a mental arithmetic section. Year 7 and 8 students will also be assessed in modules 1, 3 and 5 through smaller tests based on certain topics, projects and homework.
The Principals, other senior leaders and governors, provide outstanding leadership.Ofsted
Relationships are enhanced by the college structure. Students say, and inspectors agree, that there is a close family feel to being in a smaller college unit, and that students enjoy school more because of this.Ofsted
Students participate readily in the wide range of sports, social, art, music and drama activities that the school provides. Many students attend the after school and weekend revision clubs that staff provide.Ofsted
The school organises the wide range of subjects it teaches extremely well, and reviews them regularly, adjusting its provision to meet the changing needs of students.Ofsted
Teaching is challenging. It is based on accurate assessment of how well students make progress, what their individual learning needs are, and what kinds of activities will best make sure that they learn well.Ofsted
Students make outstanding progress in English and mathematics. Students’ progress in business, design and technology, ICT and physical education is also outstanding. Students make good progress overall.Ofsted
