Maths at Key Stage 3
Scheme of LearningAssessmentUseful Links

Our Key Stage 3 maths scheme of learning follows the  Edexcel GCSE (9-1) mathematics courses. It is a 5 year scheme of learning which has been developed to provide our students with seamless progression to GCSE. The scheme of learning is built around a unique pedagogy that’s been created by leading mathematics educational researchers and Key Stage 3 teachers.  The result is an innovative learning structure based around 10 key principles designed to nurture confidence and raise attainment.

The scheme of learning caters for students of all abilities, and is structured to deliver engaging and accessible content across three differentiated tiers. Support follows Pi() books, challenge follows Theta() books and stretch follows the Delta() books.
