The Mathematics Department is a highly successful department within the school and consistently achieves excellent results.

In 2018 our results were as follows:

 

GCSE Mathematics             Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics                       

9 – 7: 23%                                    A* – A: 60%

9 – 5: 61%                                    A*-C: 100%

9 – 4: 84%

9 – 1: 100% 

 

A-level Mathematics          A-level Further Mathematics

A* – B:  56%                           A* – B:  86%

A* – E:  97%%                           A* – E: 100%                         

 

Staff and facilities

The Mathematics Department has eight purpose built classrooms in a modern block. Each classroom is fully equipped with an interactive whiteboard and a range of supporting ICT software, which not only increases the students’ knowledge and confidence but also their enjoyment of the subject.

The Department is led by Mr T Craig.

Our dynamic team includes a further seven teachers whose specialisms include Pure Mathematics, Mechanics, Statistics and Decision Mathematics.

Enrichment

Ensuring success

We are keen to ensure students make progress with their mathematics and run a ‘Catch Up Club’ most lunchtimes staffed by two teachers for all year groups. In addition we have a “Sixth-Form Drop-In” and after school revision classes up to Year 11.

Extending high achievers

The highest achieving students in Year 11 are given the opportunity to study Level 2 Further Mathematics as an additional mathematics qualification.

Making the most of new ways of learning

We subscribe to a number of websites to aid learning, including Mymaths  www.mymaths.co.uk  and MathsWatch www.mathswatchvle.com and regularly take part in the UKMT “Mathematics Challenges” . We have also entered students in the team challenge.

Engaging with the whole school community

Each month the department posts a Puzzle of the Month competition for students, staff and parents to enter.  We also have a twitter feed https://twitter.com/burfordmaths which has interesting facts and challenges to have a go at!

Key Stages 3/4/5

Key stage information is currently being re-written.  Please check back in early September.
