In its simplest form Mathematics is the means of looking at the patterns that make up our world and the intricate and beautiful ways in which they are constructed and realised. Numeracy is the means of making that knowledge useful. It is our vision that the students leave with the numerical skills to help them realise their potential in their futures.
The Mathematics department comprises of 6 full time teachers and 3 members of staff devoted to providing intervention for our students requiring additional support in Mathematics. There are eight class rooms in the Mathematics department all equipped with interactive whiteboards and access to a suite of laptops.
We use Edexcel to examine our students externally at Key Stage 4 and our A*–C pass rate has consistently met the school targets in recent years as well as both our levels of progress and our higher grade pass rate having exceeded the national average. We have a dedicated Mathematics team who run a weekly Pi Club on Thursday mornings as well as very useful revision sessions for our Key Stage 4 students before key examination periods. Both of these are extremely popular with students and are very well attended.
At Key Stage 3 we provide invaluable support both within and outside of Mathematics lessons to support students arriving at Regents Park with low levels of numeracy as well as those highlighted as not making sufficient progress. In addition we provide a Maths Clinic on Wednesdays after school for students requiring additional guidance for particular areas of Mathematics or with their homework.
