The ambition of the curriculum at AHS is to shape young people into logical thinkers, problem solvers and lifelong mathematicians because of stimulating and engaging teaching. Pupils will be challenged and supported to believe they can achieve in mathematics.

Intent: The Big Ideas in mathematics at AHS

Our principal focus is to develop the confidence of our young mathematicians, dispelling any negative perceptions associated with the complexities that mathematics can bring. We also recognise the different journeys pupils have taken prior to attending AHS, as such we have 3 pathways at KS3 and 2 pathways at KS4.

All the pathways follow a cyclical curriculum where knowledge is deepened and extended year on year. This cyclical curriculum ensures that concepts are reviewed throughout the 5-year learning journey and retrieval of a topic/skill is built within the schemes of work to improve pupils retention and application.

From seeing the head teacher playing football with the children on the yard, to staff sitting with pupils at lunchtime, everyone works together and there’s a strong feeling of belonging to part of something bigger than just a school”
