Key Stage 3
Pupils enter St Annes academy with different levels of mathematical skills and different amounts of mathematical knowledge. The aim in year 7 is to ensure that all students have a firm grounding in arithmetic, algebra, geometry, measures, statistics and probability. In Year 8 we continue to build on these areas, and in Year 9 pupils begin KS4. Students are taught in sets of different sizes depending on their ability.
Students have eight lessons of 60 minutes per fortnight of discrete teaching throughout the key stage to ensure the delivery of the yearly teaching objectives for Mathematics.
