LCHS Maths Department

The Mathematics Department at LCHS is dedicated to inspiring each student to achieve their academic potential. The department offers a supportive, nurturing environment focused on developing a culture of excellence. We strongly believe that every student is entitled to receive the support and challenge they specifically need.

We want all children to enjoy Mathematics and to experience success in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically. We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the beauty and power of Mathematics. Understanding there is a purpose to Mathematics beyond the classroom is our curriculum intent.

Our KS3 students follow the White Rose Maths Scheme of Work:

White Rose Maths’ ‘Everyone Can’ mantra is set out below and matches our ambition for students at LCHS.


Everyone can

Together, we’re building a whole new culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress. No matter what their starting points, we help teachers and learners everywhere to achieve excellence.


Our mantra is simple:

As we prove this to pupils and teachers alike, we’re shaping assured, happy and resilient mathematicians who relish the challenge of maths. They become independent, reflective thinkers, whose skills not only liberate them in maths but also support them across the curriculum.

Each year group will be taught 4 lessons per week and are taught for ability, this means each class at some point, will experience different content within a topic area based on individual and class needs.



In KS4, students continue with the appropriate foundation/core/higher pathway, focusing more on new content as well as exam technique.

We currently offer A level in Mathematics and Further Maths and follow the Edexcel specification to provide continuity following on from GCSE.

Students will have 5 lessons a week and are expected to complete at least 5 hours of independent study a week.
