KS4 Maths


Welcome to Mathematics at King's Oak School. We believe that all students can become successful Mathematicians, given the right support, tools and confidence. We encourage our pupils to do  maths as a whole subject and not just the numeracy element. 


Did you know Maths is considered an Arts subject? If you studied it at University you are awarded a Bachelor/Masters of Arts!


The Maths as a subject has the following main strands:  

  1. Number 
  2. Algebra 
  3. Ratio, proportion and rates of change 
  4. Geometry and measure 
  5. Statistics & Probability 


This means that Maths crosses-over into lots of other subjects and there is always an element of Maths for everyone to shine in!


As a school we have found that our boys are successful when they complete bite-sized achievements as these help develop their skills and confidence, as well as preparing them for their final GCSE. In addition to Maths GCSE we also offer Statistics GCSE to students who wish to extend their learning.
