Students will enjoy and be excited by maths and will develop a body of knowledge that allows them to understand the world around them. Students will develop logical, problem solving and reasoning skills. This is important at St Katherine’s because we want all students to develop key skills for further study, the workplace and adult life. Our curriculum prepares our students for a future in mathematics, where they are able to contribute to the STEM field and the wider scientific community. We focus on ensuring links to real life are made in every lesson and we have the opportunity for pupils to study further maths at GCSE and A Level. We are very proud of the number of students that chose to follow a STEM based subject at KS5 and onto degree level.
All students will have extracurricular maths options available to them and are given STEM career information which inspires many to opt for A Level maths and post 18 STEM qualifications and careers. This is important at St Katherine’s as we know that almost all students who take up STEM A Levels at St Katherine’s go on to study STEM subjects at university (100% in 2018).
