Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and all forms of employment.
At IGS our aim is that all students are given the opportunity to realise their mathematical potential, that they understand the importance of maths and that they enjoy the variety of experiences that they will encounter throughout their mathematical education at IGS. We recognise that each individual student will have their own unique learning style so our teaching includes opportunities for independent learning, paired work, group work and hands-on resources, as well as the use of iPad technology that is now available to us. IGS Maths websites have been developed to personalise our students’ learning and our curriculum is enhanced by a range of extra-curricular activities throughout the year.
We currently follow AQA specifications for GCSE level and OCR for AS and A level Maths and Further Maths. All courses are linear with formal examinations at the end of the course.
Rated outstanding by Ofsted in a subject inspection in July 2013, our team includes thirteen fully qualified specialist Mathematics teachers who are all passionate about Maths and are very proud of our students and the results they achieve.
