Mathematics

Our aim is to make mathematics an enjoyable, exciting and empowering experience for all pupils. We want all students to improve their thinking skills by developing their mathematical abilities. We further aim to:

  • build on their experiences at primary school level and enable them to leave as confidently numerate individuals capable of working logically within difficult and abstract concepts.
  • promote high quality teaching and learning, resulting in high expectations and the production of excellent examination results.
  • foster pupils' perseverance and resourcefulness in solving problems, and to develop their ability to think logically yet creatively.
  • develop a positive, “can do” approach to mathematics and problems in general.

Here is a list of great websites that you will find very useful when doing homework/revising.
