“Provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.”
The Mathematics curriculum covers more than just basic calculations. Students, according to ability, will learn important topics including statistics, fractions, percentages and probability, formulae, algebra and analysing data. The ‘My Maths’ website is a learning aid used by the school to help students develop their mathematical skills. Learn about the Maths curriculum and how homework is set in detail below:

GCSE Mathematics (Edexcel GCSE 91) 
This course is based on students who did not achieve a level 4 or wish to improve upon their previous year 11 grade due to further education requirements. 
Students learn about the following areasNumber, Algebra, Ratio, proportion and rates of change, Geometry and measures, Probability and Statistics 
At KRS we follow the Edexcel Boards’ Specification GCSE (91) which has been designed to allow a holistic approach to teaching and assessment. Each paper assesses all assessment objectives and content, with three units each worth 33 1/3 % of the final marks. Each paper is also ramped in level of difficulty to give students a starting point in each question and leads up to stretching the most able.
Elements of functional mathematics have been embedded into the specifications and assessments. This introduction ensures that students have the skills they need to use mathematics in real life contexts. If a student has entered KRS from another school, it is possible to sit linear GCSEs from another examining board. Three written papers of 1 hour 30 minutes each. Paper 1 is non calculator; Paper 2 & 3 is calculator. 
Homework: As students will have taken the GCSE in Year 11, the vast majority of the homework will be the completion of past papers 
How to help: There are plenty of websites available such as mymaths.co.uk, but also use the Mathswatch CD rom we issue to students. 
A Level Mathematics (Edexcel 8MA0 & 9MA0) 
The AS course cover three different areas of mathematics, Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics. 
AS Mathematics consists of:
Pure Mathematics 1 (written examination 2 hr, 66.66%, 100 marks) This is a standalone qualification and will not contribute towards the A2 level. The A2 course covers the same three different areas of mathematics, but will examine the same content as the AS course as well as extending each of these areas of mathematics. A2 Mathematics consists of: Pure Mathematics 1 (written examination 2 hr, 33.33%, 100 marks) Statistics and Mechanics ( written examination 2 hr, 33.33%, 100 marks) 
Students learn about the following areas

Homework: This will depend upon where the class are up to within the syllabus, but it is usually either Mixed Review Exercises or Past Paper Questions 
How to help: Websites available such as mymaths.co.uk, examsolutions.co.uk or khanacademy.org 
A Level Further Mathematics (Edexcel 8FM0 & 9F M0) 
Further Mathematics is an A Level in its own right. Although some of the maths you would study is complex and demanding, generally Further Maths means “More Maths” and not necessarily “Harder Maths”. Further Maths A Level is an opportunity to deepen your knowledge and understanding of topics you are already familiar with as well as an opportunity to study different areas of Mathematical importance. 
Students will complete both their Maths AS and Further Maths AS levels in Year 12. They would then choose whether to continue with both or only continue with Mathematics. If both, they would then complete their Maths A2 level and Further Mathematics A2 level in Year 13.
The most likely modules would be: Y12 Further Pure Mathematics 1 (written examination 1 hr 30 min. 50%, 75 marks) Y12 Decision Mathematics (written examination 1 hr 30 min. 50%, 75 marks) Yet again this AS course is a standalone qualification and does not contribute to the A2 qualification. Y13 Further Pure Mathematics 1 (written examination 1 hr 30 min. 25%, 75 marks) Y13 Further Pure Mathematics 2 (written examination 1 hr 30 min. 25%, 75 marks) Y13 Further Statistics 1 (written examination 1 hr 30 min. 25%, 75 marks) Y13 Further Decision 1 or Further Mechanics 1 (written examination 1 hr 30 min. 25%, 75 marks) 
Students learn about the following areas For FP1 students will cover topics such as series, complex numbers, matrices & proof, for FP2: first order and second order differential equations, further series and complex numbers and for FP3: further matrices, differentiation, integration and coordinate systems, vectors, hyperbolic functions. 
Homework: This will depend upon where the class are up to within the syllabus, but it is usually either Mixed Review Exercises or Past Paper Questions
