The department aims for students to become capable and confident in both their use and understanding of Mathematics. A range of approaches including practical work and the use of ICT are integral to the teaching and learning of Mathematics. By the end of KS3 we want students to be confident in using and applying what they have learnt to a variety of real life situations. This continues through KS4 as we encourage them to be good problem solvers who are able to use Mathematics as a tool but also appreciate the intrinsic beauty of Mathematics itself.
