The APHS Mathematics curriculum seeks to meet the aims and scope of the Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 National Curriculum. Further details of this can be found at the bottom of this page.
The school curriculum seeks to provide outstanding personal development by supporting, promoting and instilling the values of APHS - Ambition, Pride, Happiness and Success. The Mathematics curriculum has the following intent:
Key Stage 3 is delivered in Year 7, 8 and 9 across three years. While students will start to encounter GCSE material and assessment methods during Year 9, Key Stage 4 is formally delivered in Year 10 and 11 across two years.

Progress scores over the previous three years have shown that students consistently make good progress in Maths at APHS, with students from disadvantaged backgrounds making progress in the top 20% of all schools nationally.
In 2019, 76% of students achieved at least a grade 4 in Maths with 47% of students achieving a Grade 5 helping the school to achieve record results.
The Maths department also took part in a national standardisation exercise as a partner school of the Hodder Education PUMA (Progress in Understanding Mathematics Assessment) testing scheme. Along with the GL Assessment Progress Tests series, we use these tools to ensure that progress across KS3 and into KS4 is robustly assessed.
