The smaller scale of Maths Schools will ensure that all students will be well known by their teachers. This will facilitate greater personalisation than would be possible in a more traditional sixth form setting and an increased ability to support the individual academic needs of each student.
The core curriculum will consist of all students studying A Level Mathematics and A Level Further Mathematics. In addition, students will have the option of studying A Levels in the following subjects:
A Level Physics, A Level Chemistry, A Level Computer Science or A Level Mandarin Chinese.
We will encourage students to consider A Level Physics as one of their options.
The aim of the curriculum at LMaS is to teach our students to think creatively to solve problems. The specialist nature of the school and the input of staff and students from the University of Leeds will allow students to experience the true essence of mathematics. We plan to go further than the standard exam-led curriculum and explore the incredible excitement that our subjects offer.
Additionally, all students will undertake the Leeds Mathematics Certificate. This will be a highlight of our curriculum and will offer the opportunity to collaborate and engage with demanding, real-life mathematics challenges. The Leeds Mathematics Certificate will allow students to develop their problem-solving and research skills whilst grappling with mathematical challenges set by one of our partner organisations.
