Key Stages 3 and 4

Mathematics is taught in Edmund Rice College by a team of specialist Mathematics teachers, who work in partnership with the pupils and their parents. It is our aim to provide a rich and varied experience of mathematical opportunities through which pupils can develop their potential for success and enjoyment of Mathematics.

The approach used is very practical, games and puzzles are incorporated and much use is made of computers. We take part in Inter School maths competitions and run our own annual Year 8 maths table quiz.

Pupils are set according to their ability for maths. Those pupils who are most in need of teacher support are placed in smaller groups and there is flexibility allowing for movement within Year groups.

All Year 10 pupils complete the Key Stage 3 Maths Examination and prepare an investigation for IT accreditation.

All Year 12 pupils undertake GCSE Maths.
