The understanding of numbers and the ability to manipulate them is a fundamental requirement in society.
Every child deserves to be armed with Mathematics as a tool that can be used and applied in the world at large. In a universally numerical world the fundamental aim of the Mathematics Department is to build confidence and competence with numbers using an approach that is enjoyable, relevant and meaningful.
Our work schemes are based on the National Curriculum and the ISEB Common Entrance syllabus. We provide a sound grounding in the mechanical skills necessary to tackle examinations, without allowing the examination syllabus to be restrictive. Our classes are set in ability groups which enables greater differentiation and affords each child the opportunity to work at his or her own pace.
In delivering the syllabus, the Mathematics Department strives to equip each pupil with knowledge and skills, to encourage each pupil to think for him or herself and instill in each child an enjoyment and appreciation for this all-important subject.
