Mathematics is a challenging and exciting subject, often described as ‘exercise for the brain’. It is satisfying to study in its own right and continues to be highly valued by employers in all fields.
From Year 7 through to Year 13, pupils learn mathematical techniques in number, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics. We consider the abstract beauty and elegance of proofs, while also learning about the applications of mathematics in a range of contexts. Pupils are encouraged to discuss and develop their ideas with their peers and are given regular and thorough feedback on the progress they make. Exam results are excellent and the majority of our year 11 pupils choose to study mathematics in the sixth form, again obtaining outstanding results. Many students go on to study degrees which contain mathematics as a key element.
Mathematics is an ancient subject, which is very much alive at Camp Hill today. The department continues to offer a range of additional support opportunities for Key Stages 3 and 4 and the sixth form, plus a whole host of extra mathematical enrichment activities including individual and team mathematics competitions, trips and lectures. In addition to our in-house activities, we have formed many partnerships with other schools in the area.
