maths teacher and class


Mathematics at Bedstone is taught by three highly qualified Mathematics specialists each of whom has significant experience of teaching across a wide range of abilities.. For those who have to work hard to grasp Mathematics, help is provided in the form of smaller classes and pupils can ask for help at any time. For the more able, the UK Maths Challenge, set by Leeds University, provides a real stimulus.

In the lead up to public examinations, the Maths team provides extra revision classes which are much appreciated by pupils. Public examination results at both GCSE level and A level are very good. On average over the years, some 85% of pupils achieved grades A* to C at GCSE (national average of around 55%).

The vast majority of candidates in the top set in a typical year would expect to achieve an A or A* in GCSE Maths. There is a very high take-up in Maths in the Sixth Form. Further Maths is also offered in the Sixth Form alongside the traditional A level.
