Mathematics: is very successful and integral part of Brondesbury College, as it is used every day in every way. Students at Brondesbury College have excelled in the subject and continue to show progress year in, year out. Mathematic was seen as an “Outstanding” department in the most recent OFSTED inspection where the inspectors also felt the teaching was excellent as they highlighted the significant teaching strengths in the subject.
Year 7: KS3 Mathematics is reduced to two years and will start in year 7.
Year 8: We finish KS3 in year 8.
Year 9: Start GCSE Mathematics with a further option of starting a GCSE in Statistics.
Year 10: Complete the two year course in Mathematics and if the GCSE Statistics option was chosen than also complete the GCSE in Statistics. Students follow the Edexcel Linear Mathematics syllabus 1380 which is completely exam based and aim to sit their exam early at the end of year 10 all entries up to date have been for the higher tier.
Year 11: Start AS Level Mathematics in order for students to have a head start in College.
Assessment: Judging by the enthusiasm in class and results I can confidently say Mathematics is loved by the vast majority of students at Brondesbury College. Even though our students are put through the GCSE Mathematics a year early we have seen that this year (our current Year 11’s of the academic year 2010/11) we have 25% of students receiving an A* and 75% of students receiving either an A*or A and this shows that the thirst for Mathematical knowledge is still prevalent at Brondesbury.
