Vision

By working through a range of different tasks and learning activities we expect all students at The Peele Community College to…

  • Become fluent in the basics of maths, so that we can develop understanding and the ability to recall facts and apply our knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • Think mathematically
  • Solve problems quickly and with confidence

 

Key stage three breakdown

The Mathematics curriculum is a 5 year curriculum designed to prepare students for GCSE Mathematics at the end of year 11

 

Key stage four breakdown

This is a core subject which all students are expected to study at GCSE level.

 

GCSE Mathematics covers a wide range of basic mathematical knowledge and skills, grouped into three areas:

  • Number and Algebra
  • Geometry and Measure
  • Probability and Statistics

 

We follow the AQA 9-1 specification – students sit three exam papers which both cover all areas of the subject.
