Curriculum Information

At Hanham Woods Academy, the maths department are striving for every pupil to pass their GCSE and with the highest grade possible.

Mathematics is hugely important in society and with a firm grasp and understanding of the subject, many doors are open to you.

The subject equips pupils with the ability to reason logically, analyse and to solve problems. These skills are all essential within the workplace and in society. Mathematics is an international language and one that is fundamental to understand the world in which we live in.

Teaching arrangements
All year groups receive 5 x 50 minute lessons each week.

Curriculum Overview

The Maths Curriculum Map sets out an overview of the curriculum in Maths from Years 7 through to Year 11.  Among other things, it sets out what is studied, why it is studied, as well as the keywords needed in each year.  Students and parents are likely to find this useful.

At Hanham Woods Academy we encourage students to think like Mathematicians in their Maths lessons.  The Hanham Thinkers Maths poster summarises what that means.
