It is important that mathematics at key stage three builds upon the mathematical experiences students experience at primary school.

Explore what is meant by mastery, and consider the transition from primary to secondary school, and the mapping of progression through key stage three.

“Really enjoyed the course. So valuable to have time to reflect on Maths with colleagues and to discuss topics in depth. It's given me so many ideas to take back to school… Really impressive setup here!” Past participant

Develop techniques to improve problem solving skills and resilience in the context of hard to teach topics encountered in key stage three. Eg fractions, proportional reasoning, standard form and powers, the geometry of arithmetic and geometric sequences, exploring graphs using Geogebra, solving problems in three dimensions and Venn diagrams in probability.

Participants will undertake a gap task and produce an action plan to help embed into their teaching the skills developed in the course.

This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.


You will be able to:

  • develop a deeper understanding of the requirements of the key stage three mathematics specification
  • consider approaches to teaching 'hard to teach' topics in key stage three
  • complete a gap task giving the opportunity to put theory into practice
