Mathematics

What is Mathematics for at Meridian High School?

Mathematics at Meridian High School is delivered by a determined, hardworking and passionate team of teachers who strive to share their excitement for mathematics with all students. The mathematics curriculum at Meridian High School is designed to deepen students’ understanding of core mathematical principles through a mastery approach; which focuses learning onto the ‘why’ of mathematics. The curriculum focuses on developing students in three strands of mathematical thinking – fluency, reasoning and problem-solving – so that the key skills and processes learnt in the classroom can be applied to practical, real-world scenarios.

Why does Mathematics as a subject matter?

As a core subject, mathematics is an important subject which has the capacity to enable us to think more deeply and intuitively about the wider world. The study of mathematics is not just about learning the core content, but also about training students’ to think logically and approach problems with resilience and the tools to unpick the problem and find a solution.

What does Mathematics help young people to achieve?

A firm grasp of the key concepts and processes in mathematics is essential to equip our young people to flourish in day to day living by providing them with the skills and confidence to carry-out everyday tasks with greater ease; from handling bills to deciding the most efficient way of carry out a series of tasks. Students who are comfortable and confident with mathematics are able to develop critical thinking skills enabling them to effectively problem-solve and solution-find. Young people who are able to leave school with these skills are better equipped to be numerate in multiple settings across society and are able to flourish in a variety of fields.


Topics covered in Year 7:

At Meridian High School, year 7 students follow a Maths Mastery approach which is aimed at developing deeper understanding of the core mathematical principles. Students will be primarily focused on solidifying and deepening their number skills, whilst being introduced to statistics, basic algebra and line & angle geometry.

Topics covered in Year 8:

The curriculum is continued into Year 8 where students extend their understanding of algebra, statistics and shape geometry, and are also introduced to ratio, proportion and rates of change in preparation for the being of the GCSE course.

Topics covered in Year 9 - 11:

KS4 students at Meridian High School follow a three year GCSE – the mathematics curriculum is designed to introduce students to each of the six core areas of the GCSE – number, algebra, geometry, probability, statistics, and ratio, proportion and rates of change. The curriculum is fully delivered by the Spring term of Year 11 with regular revision and review points built in throughout the two years.


Qualification title:

AQA GCSE Maths (8300)

Additional learning resources:

  • www.onmaths.com – A selection of online exam questions with instant feedback
  • Hegarty Maths – each student has their own username and password
