At Camp Hill, pupils develop the ability to solve demanding problems, to think on their feet, to reason logically, to explain their thought processes using precise language and to apply technology appropriately.
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.
Mathematics is an ancient subject, which is very much alive at Camp Hill today. The department continues to go from strength to strength, offering a range of additional support sessions for Key Stages 3 and 4 and the sixth form, plus a whole host of extra mathematical enrichment activities.
In addition to our in-house activities, we have formed many partnerships with other primary and secondary schools in the area. These have included providing mathematical workshops to extend able Year 6 pupils, offering staff training, supporting GCSE pupils with coursework and working with year 3 children to bake cakes.
From Year 7 through to Year 13, pupils learn mathematical techniques in number, algebra, geometry, probability and data handling. 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. Regular professional development for staff ensures that we are kept up to date with new initiatives and are constantly evaluating and refining our own classroom practice. The latest technology is used to enhance pupils own understanding.
Exam results are excellent and the majority of the year 12 chooses 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.
