"Mathematics is the alphabet with which God has written the Universe"
In the Maths department we aim to equip our pupils with that alphabet.
We set to allow all pupils to develop their understanding of mathematical concepts at a rate suitable to each individual to ensure that they maintain confidence in their ability and develop a secure foundation, particularly in arithmetic skills.
Our small class sizes allow tutors more time to work with individual pupils. Pupils are taught in a maximum set size of 16 and lower ability groups are kept smaller.
Our more able pupils are extended by various competitions, including The United Kingdom Junior Maths Challenge, a competition aimed at the top 20% of mathematicians in the country.
We also have a specialist remedial maths teacher who works 1:1 with individual pupils if needed.
