At Saint Felix School, we teach our students mathematics skills that are relevant and of real benefit in today’s ever-changing world, whether it be for higher education or in their working lives.
Key Stage One: Using the New Heinemann mathematics scheme, pupils learn and master the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division through age-appropriate activities. Pupils learn the full range of Numeracy Curriculum topics, including money, shape, measure, fractions, time, and data handling.
Key Stage Two: Pupils enhance their understanding of the above to include negative numbers, decimals and percentages, fractions, prime numbers, cube and square numbers, times tables, basic algebra, angles, graphs and charts, units of measurement, and area.
Key Stage Three: As part of the early stages of their structured GCSE course, students will learn powers and roots, approximation and estimation, advanced algebra, ratio and proportions, rates of change, geometry and measures, probability, statistics, etc.
Key Stage Four: Students prepare for, then take, their OCR GCSE Mathematics examination. Units of study include number operations and integers; fractions, decimals and percentages; indices and surds; approximation and estimation; ratio, proportion and rates of change; algebra; graphs of equations and functions; basic geometry; congruence and similarity; mensuration; probability; and statistics.
Our Mathematics Department provides professional, engaging, and diverse lessons in a supportive environment, enabling students of all abilities to reach their fullest potential.
