In Years 7, 8 and 9 students will undertake a wide ranging course covering topics from number, algebra, shape and space and handling data. There will be an emphasis on numeracy in Year 7 to ensure that all students are confident in working with numbers in a variety of situations without a calculator. Problem solving will be a focus for all classes to ensure they gain confidence in this area and be prepared for the new GCSE which will first be examined in 2017.
Every student’s progress will be tracked throughout their time at Fairfield to ensure that they make regular progress.
In Years 10 and 11 students follow the EDEXCEL course at GCSE. There are two tiers of entry and students will be entered for the tier which maximises their potential in GCSE Mathematics. Students will have the opportunity to be entered in National competitions run by the UKMT including the Junior Maths Challenge (JMC) and Intermediate Maths Challenge (IMC) during their time at Fairfield.
