Here are the Academy, maths is a core subject in our home schooling curriculum and is compulsory for all students up to GCSE. We also offer maths as an A-Level subject.
Mathematical thinking is an essential life skill. It is about being able to think logically, understanding the value of documentation and replicability, understanding the importance of mathematical storytelling.
We understand this importance and work to support our students to master not only the syllabus but the skills that underpin it.
We work with a set text which allows home school students to take ownership of their learning, easily dipping into related areas of enquiry so that they develop a holistic approach to their mathematics learning.
Each week, students will complete a number of lessons as set by their Study Planner specially designed to support home schooling students. Fully supported by video lectures, students will make notes and completed assignments that allow them to dive into the syllabus and acquire the skills they need to master the subject. Our engaging lesson content brings the material life as tutors guide students through the theory and its application.
Maths is a core part of any home school timetable and we work hard to ensure that students are able to not merely cover by to thrive in this subject.

Our commitment to teaching students the art of mathematical storytelling means that throughout our lessons, students will be given guidance on how to ensure that their methodology and documentation are meeting the high standards we expect here are the Academy. In this way, students produce work of a high quality, engaging more thoroughly with the assignments, and reaping greater rewards from their learning.
In addition to giving students the key foundational knowledge they need to master mathematics and guiding them through focussed assignments to develop their skills, we integrate exam-style questions into our teaching, challenging students to apply their mathematical knowledge across the topics of the syllabus. In this way, students gain confidence in tackling complex maths problems that require the application of several skills.
