Mathematics is critical in helping us all to understand and change the world. It plays a vital role in many aspects of our everyday life. The subject of Mathematics provides us with a broad range of skills for problem solving, logical reasoning and flexible thinking.

At Ernest Bevin Academy, we have redesigned our Key Stage 3 schemes of learning to reflect the new National Curriculum for Mathematics. Our KS3 students complete a 2-year programme of study for KS3 and then proceed to go onto a 3-year GCSE programme. Our schemes of learning are intended to develop the skills set out in the National Curriculum as well as to nurture a sense of curiosity and confidence about mathematics.

Ernest Bevin Academy subscribes to Hegarty Maths to help students progress with Maths. Please click here for guidance on how to log in to Hegarty Maths.

We’re combining the best of both, using expertise from Hegarty Maths and Sparx to improve learning outcomes. From the **1st of September 2023**, we will move to Sparx.
