The Mathematics Department seeks to enrich every student with the mathematical skills, and confidence in those skills, that they will need, whether it be for intellectual interest, for supporting other areas or simply to achieve a good qualification in this essential subject.
In this section
The Mathematics Department consists of seven spacious classrooms and a department office. Each room is equipped with interactive whiteboards and data projectors. Pupils have access to various electronic resources to supplement the textbooks that they are provided with.
