### Why study mathematics?

Mathematics is the universal language that is used to describe the world around us and is an essential skill that is required to fully understand many aspects of life. Through a rich curriculum focussing on teaching key concepts we intend to develop students as problem-solvers whom are equipped with the skills that they will require to flourish in day-to-day life and able to think logically and critically.

To achieve this the curriculum aims to develop students’ skills and understanding in terms of mathematical literacy and fluency, reasoning and problem-solving, explaining mathematics as a series of interconnected concepts and ideas, as well as highlighting the links with other areas of the school curriculum and life outside the school.

By delivering a rich curriculum that based around a deep conceptual understanding we will also engender a fascination with the subject and promote further study of mathematics beyond the KS4 curriculum.
