Here at Horndean Technology College we understand both the importance and relevance of maths in today’s society. Students need to have skills in number, algebra, shape, data handling and problem solving.
All students at Key Stage 3 have 7 lessons of maths per fortnight. We follow a course based on the National Curriculum with most students sitting their Key Stage 3 SATs at the end of Year 9. However, some students are identified as being able to study a more accelerated curriculum and will sit their SATs at the end of Year 8.
At Key Stage 4 students will follow a GCSE course with most sitting their GCSE exam at the end of Year 11. Some, however, will sit their GCSE and the end of Year 10.
The department has 8 classrooms, all equipped with projectors and interactive whiteboards enabling students to benefit from all the latest software. The department also has a dedicated ICT suite allowing students to access the internet, work on the various ICT packages we have purchased and complete any project based work.
