Welcome to the Maths Department
Mathematics is fundamental to life in the sense that its unique language helps us to calculate, estimate and problem-solve. It also informs many of the choices and decisions we make about real-life issues and challenges and the actions we subsequently take. Students at Stretford High will develop their problem solving strategies which can be used in Maths and applied to everyday and real world situations.

In the Maths department we have designed our curriculum:
Our aims and objectives are to enable students to:
Mastering mathematics at KS3 involves all students achieving a true depth of understanding of mathematical concepts. Our KS3 curriculum is planned around Mastery and Realistic Maths Education (RME), which has been developed by the Manchester Metropolitan University. The KS3 curriculum is carefully planned to ensure students cover all skills required at GCSE and can apply these skills to texts of increasing difficulty so that they can confidently meet the demands of the 9-1 GCSE.
At KS4 students study for the Edexcel 9-1 Specification for a GCSE in Mathematics. The skills students learn in KS3 are applied at GCSE level throughout Key Stage 4 and in students’ terminal examinations
More information about the GCSE’s can be found here.
GCSE revision resources can be found here.
Mathswatch and Active Learn are excellent resource available to students which can be used to catch up on work missed and as a revision tool. It is also used for homework tasks. The websites can accessed here:
