“Life is a maths equation; in order to gain the most from life you have to know how to convert negatives into positives.” Anonymous
Mathematics is essential in today’s world. It is a powerful tool for understanding the world around us. Math surrounds us and we see and use math skills every day. Everyone needs some level of mathematics knowledge. We aim to prepare our students for mathematics in everyday life whilst also pushing them to achieve the best possible grade in their GCSE exam.
Here at Epsom and Ewell we hope to nurture a strong understanding of the fundamental basics during key stage 3. We aim to develop an interest and curiosity of Mathematics, trying wherever possible to incorporate real world examples. We aim to go beyond the curriculum; for example students are taught about finance, cooking and real life probability within our lessons. In key stage 4 teaching and learning is tailored towards the GCSE exam. Students study for the Edexcel 9 - 1 GCSE made up of 1 non calculator and 2 calculator papers, 90 minutes each.
Beyond the GCSE we offer A level Mathematics, in which we aim to push our students to understand mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence, fosters enjoyment and provides a strong foundation for them to progress to further study.
Students at Epsom and Ewell High School engage and thrive in maths lessons, the resilience and dedication they show to maths is a real strength of the school.
