Mathematics is everywhere! Whether it be checking that you have paid the correct amount of tax, or programming the next generation of computers, a sound grasp of mathematics will be vital for all of our students to be able to take their place in the 21st century world. We aim to equip our students with the skills needed to solve tomorrow’s problems, as well as developing their core numeracy skills.

We are using RUCSAC as a tool to solve problems, and weekly Numeracy Ninja.
