Head of Department - Ms A Matthews B.A.
Pupils are taught in groups according to their ability, through traditional written methods combined with practical work, problem solving, functional mathematics and investigative work. They are taught both calculator and non-calculator methods for solving problems. The department makes extensive use of its computer room and nine interactive whiteboards, and ICT is an integral part of Mathematics lessons for all age groups. We emphasise high standards and expect our pupils to aim for excellent results.
The department has 8 groups studying Advanced Level courses in Pure Mathematics with both Statistics and Mechanics as well as one group studying Advanced Level Further Mathematics.
