We regard Mathematics as an essential element of communication, a powerful tool for use in other subjects and in real life contexts and intriguing in its own right.

‘Mathematics for All’

Developing students’ mathematical skills and understanding, reasoning and confidence to help to prepare them for their future lives


Mathematics is certainly a subject which inspires strong emotions. We see Mathematics as a subject for all. We strive to help each student to grow in confidence, knowledge and skills and to enjoy the challenges and opportunities which the subject provides.

  • Challenges which will require quiet reflection, collaboration with peers and mutual support.
  • Opportunities for learners to enjoy seeking patterns and to learn to work in an increasingly systematic manner
  • Challenges which can help to foster listening skills and dialogue, determination and resilience.
  • Opportunities to use one’s initiative, to develop one’s powers of visualisation and analysis and to expand one’s imagination
  • Challenges to make careful use of vocabulary, notation, diagrams and graphs to convey one’s thought processes clearly and concisely
  • Opportunities to develop greater flexibility and precision of thinking and to study concepts in depth.
  • We are passionate about working with learners of any age to develop their understanding and their confidence in their own mathematical abilities.

By building upon students’ prior learning we strive to support learners in connecting, deepening and advancing their understanding.

We also look to foster an appreciation of the relationships within Mathematics and an awareness of the innate fascination of the subject.

We value students’ thinking and their questions, their strategies and their creativity. We make use of assessment for learning to help to inform our teaching. Regular home learning is set so that students can review, embed and extend their learning, helping them to make valuable links to the next lesson.

We are committed to supporting each individual in our classes and to sharing our love of Mathematics. With high expectations about classroom behaviour, we are ambitious for all our learners. We take care to provide a positive learning environment, inclusive of all members of the class and we are aspirational about the progress which each learner can make, looking to support their preparation for the next stage of their education, their future life.
