Maths at any level involves the study of quantity, structure, space and chance. In the Mathematics department, we believe in rigor, imagination and insight. The varied approaches to learning within the classroom and the strength of the teaching within the department mean that the subject is popular across the age ranges at LOGS. Teaching is supported by out of class learning in subject clinics as well as by individual study and practice. Pupils at all levels are given the opportunity to practise techniques they are learning, and receive regular feedback in class and through marked work.
We start the three year GCSE Mathematics course at the beginning of Year 9, with all students sitting the exams at the end of Year 11. Students follow a syllabus appropriate to their ability at either Foundation or Higher level. The level a student eventually takes can be flexible as they progress through the three years of study.
We offer AS and A level courses in the Sixth Form in Mathematics and Further Mathematics, with students being able to move from AS to the full A level and vice-versa.
We follow the Edexcel specification at GCSE, AS and A level.
