Mathematics is taught with the aim of enabling students to be confident with numbers and the mathematical principles necessary for life beyond the classroom.
In the senior department all year groups are set which enables progress for all pupils at a rate appropriate to their abilities. For those that struggle with maths, individual support is provided, and, for those that relish a mathematical challenge, there are workshops which lead to national quizzes and competitions.
In the sixth form the more talented mathematicians can opt for further maths at A level alongside the maths A level. At GCSE virtually all pupils will attempt the higher tier paper. Exam results in the subject at all levels in the school are very impressive with a considerable number of students going on to higher education in maths related subjects.
We try to make maths enjoyable for all by using a variety of resources - and a good deal of humour.
