The Mathematics department is committed to helping each student achieve their potential whilst also fostering an enjoyment of and enthusiasm for a fascinating subject.
The National Curriculum provides us with a framework for our lessons. Students are placed according to ability. Regular testing is supported by a close working knowledge of all students in our small classes to ensure that students are both encouraged and stretched at an appropriate level, with interchange between sets as necessary.
We are aware of different learning styles as well as the needs of individual students, and continue to increase our use of ICT and practical equipment in the classroom to enhance learning and understanding.
Students enter the International GCSE at Higher or Foundation level at the end of Key Stage 4. A small group of exceptionally able go on to study AQA Further Mathematics and some A level work in Year 11. This is a particularly valuable opportunity for those wishing to pursue Mathematics at A level and beyond once they have left The Gregg School.
We encourage the enjoyment of Mathematics and provide a varied and extensive enrichment program across all years. These activities and trips focus on providing greater depth about the subject in a real world context.
Maths Ambassdor program to develop aspiring leaders to support the younger students and the department but running twice weekly clubs to offer help with revision and homework. This program is also part of the whole school Valor program.
We have achieved a regular supply of Gold, Silver and Bronze awards over the years and each year a number of students proceed to the highly regarded European and International competitions.
A national Team Mathematics event holds a regional first round at Churcher's College in Petersfield and the teams of two Year 8 and two Year 9 students who regularly take part have a wonderful day of hectic mathematical fun. Our aim each year is to enjoy the day, although beating all the other local schools would be a bonus!
We are proud of our achievements and strive to achieve our aim: that all students should experience enjoyment of the subject and achieve levels of understanding that equips them for future studies, careers and life.
