Maths

Mathematics is a core subject and is fundamental in enabling young people to lead successful careers. At Outwood Academy Acklam we deliver Mathematics through a Mastery led curriculum which involves establishing a deep understanding of Mathematics, this is enhanced and developed through problem solving. The learning of the students is enriched by both collaborative and independent activities.

Key Stage 3

The Mathematics course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the GCSE course in Key Stage 4. We follow a 2 year Key Stage 3 Mastery Scheme of Work in order to prepare students for their GCSE Maths course which they will begin in year 9. Each year is split up into a series of topics which students study for periods of between 2 and 4 weeks. We also have problem solving and project weeks. All students will learn the same content regardless of their group. More able students will be stretched by content depth rather than going onto the next stage.
