Mathematics is full of unsolved problems and the Mathematics Department at Cornelius Vermuyden is a place to investigate these ideas and unlock a world of wonder. Mathematics is an amazing and beautiful intellectual creation, one of the human race's deepest endeavours. The world around us, and the future world we are creating, is woven through with mathematics.

We have very high expectations for all of our pupils. Mathematics lessons provide an environment where students can develop their full potential. We encourage and promote problem solving skills and techniques at all levels and across the range of mathematical topics, as well as encouraging students to recognise mathematical experiences in other curricular areas. Students are also shown the relevance and importance of Mathematics to the real world and the impact it has. The department is dedicated to developing learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged.

Students will study the new GCSE curriculum in year 10 & 11. The assessment consists of three written papers; one non-calculator and two calculator papers. All papers are 1 hour 30 minutes long.

To help prepare students’ for their GCSE exam we would recommend they use the following revision websites.

National association of
Able Children in England

Cornelius Vermuyden are an official member of NACE (National association of Able Children in England).

Not only does this partnership support our development of our highest achieving pupils, it supports the development of every pupil in the school. We are committed to ensuring that a high level of challenge exists in the classroom in every lesson and to help potential convert to success and happiness for our pupils. We are firm believers that "rising tides lift all ships" and that if all students have a daily diet of challenging experiences at school and beyond, then this will help support their educational and personal development as learners and as people. Yet, as our 2016 GCSE results showed, those who come to us classed as more able achieve incredible results – for example, Callum Cuthbert leaving the school with 11 A* grades is an achievement that is not just well above the national average in terms of progress and achievement, but one that should be celebrated in terms of the school's work with its high achieving pupils.

However, here at Cornelius Vermuyden, we promote the ethos that all children must be given access to a positive mindset in terms of their learning. The message is clear; all young people are capable of reaching any goal they set their mind to if they are challenged and show a positive attitude to self - improvement . Cornelius Vermuyden places challenge and the importance of a 'growth mindset' at the heart of its teaching and learning vision for our pupils and our association with NACE is supporting this commitment to all pupils at the school.
