A huge thank you to for reacting so quickly and providing us with earlier buses to our car park🙌🏼 Students will be able to get the bus at 1:45pm from the academy carpark.


Yesterday our students were part of a youth orchestra with modulo for the day from rehearsals to tech runs then a final performance of the day. They studied their section brass and composed sections of music to add to the final performance 🎭

our young saxophonists are really inspired by you 🤩🎷. They loved participating in Modulo with today and wanted to share this with you!


The awards have arrived for our Sports Awards evening 🏆


Lots going on next week in the PE dept! Monday - Year 7 Sports Day Tuesday - Year 8 Sports Day Wednesday - Year 9 Sports Day Friday - Year 10 Sports Day Arrive in your PE kit and bring plenty of water, suncream and a hat☀️


What a week it’s been! It has been great getting to know our new Year 7 students this week. We are looking forward to seeing you again in September!


Today Year 10 Geographers visited Walton on the Naze to collect data as part of their GCSE Geography course. Students had a brilliant day and we even managed to get some fish and chips and ice cream after a long day of fieldwork 🍦 ☀️


Making new friends - students from 4 different primary schools at HARI transition this week 🧡


Day 2 of transition week is well underway. Students had a briefing with Mr Balogun this morning all on behaviour and self-regulation.


Well done to all our new Year 7’s for a very successful first day! It was great to meet you all. See you tomorrow ready for Day 2!

Mathematics, a universal language that enables understanding of the world, is an integral part of the curriculum. Beyond the study of numbers, shapes, and patterns, it also provides important tools for work in fields such as engineering, physics, architecture, medicine, and business. It nurtures the development of a logical and methodical mindset, as well helping to inculcate focus and the ability to solve all manner of problems. Attainment in the subject is also the key to opening new doors to further study and employment. Our maths curriculum is designed to help pupils to gain increasing mathematical proficiency, build confidence in their ability and prepare students for KS5 study and potentially beyond. 

Our teachers engineer the best possible start for all pupils by closing the school entry gap in knowledge of basic mathematical facts, concepts, vocabulary, and symbols. Teaching is systematic and clear. Content is carefully sequenced to encourage long-term learning. The teaching of maths facts and methods is sequenced to take advantage of the way that knowing those facts helps pupils to learn methods, and vice versa. Useful facts and efficient and accurate methods are paired within a topic sequence. Strategies for solving problem types are taught and learned once pupils can recall and deploy facts and methods with speed and accuracy. Our aim is for pupils to attain proficiency. This helps pupils to develop motivation in the subject. 

Pupils are provided regular opportunities to rehearse and apply the important mathematical facts, concepts, methods, and strategies they have learned by completing fluency quizzes each lesson. We regularly assess the core knowledge that pupils have learned though short consolidation tasks and multiple-choice quizzes. This aids pupils’ confidence and makes it easier to analyse and respond to gaps in learning. Our teachers support pupils’ progression by ensuring written work is of a high quality. This is important because when pupils’ calculations are systematic and orderly, they are better able to see the connections of number and to spot errors. 

In KS3 students develop their understanding of number, place value, rounding, operations, factors, multiples, and proportion. They learn to communicate using algebra, manipulate expressions, to model situations, and interpret relationships both algebraically and graphically. They also develop their skills in elementary geometry, probability, and statistics. An emphasis is placed on developing fluency and understanding key mathematical concepts and relationships.


In KS4 students develop a deeper understanding of the five main areas of Mathematics studied, namely number, proportion, geometry, probability, and statistics. Pupils consolidate connections across mathematical ideas. They develop their skills in mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems.
