Expectations

All pupils should have their school planner with them and have it out at the start of the lesson. As a minimum pupils are   expected to have a pen, pencil and ruler for all lessons. A rubber,   protractor and pair of compasses would be beneficial. Those pupils expecting   to sit the Higher GCSE paper should have their own Scientific calculator at   the earliest possible opportunity. 

A-Level

Mathematics is offered at A-level, using the AQA   syllabus. This is an A-level that is respected by both employers and admission   tutors at university. It can lead into interesting and varied careers, which   can be amongst the most well paid jobs available.

Scheme of Work

From Year 7 at Serlby Park Academy, all students receive a broad curriculum and study a range of mathematical topics including: Number, Algebra, Ratio, Proportion and Rates of Change, Geometry and Measures, Statistics and Probability.  Students study in classes set on ability, and lessons are carefully personalised for individuals to help secure a good understanding of concepts studied and ensure a consistently appropriate level of challenge.  The scheme of work ensures a continuous cycle of consolidation and building upon prior knowledge at an individual level through regular assessment.
