We believe everyone can succeed in Mathematics through perseverance, enjoyment and developing resilience in the face of challenge. Through our curriculum, we aim to nurture confident mathematical communicators. We teach the National Curriculum and provide challenge through developing problem- solving skills, supporting students independent thinking and promoting mathematical reasoning.
