Mathematics

Mathematics plays a huge role in everyday life and is the key to a vast array of career pathways. St Mary's Maths Department is proud to offer many exciting opportunities for students to fulfil their potential and broaden their knowledge and enjoyment of the subject. It is vital that all students learn exactly how Maths relates to and underpins other curriculum subjects.

Keeping up to date with new technology:

Every single one of our Maths classrooms has an interactive whiteboard and we subscribe to the excellent website www.mymaths.co.uk to encourage independent learning.

Our teachers are highly skilled and passionate about their subject, and a number of them are experienced in applying Maths commercially both in industry and the workplace.

Learning with confidence:

Students are taught in sets from Year 7 to Year 11, and the Year Groups are split into two halves. We believe this accurate setting helps our students are to learn confidently at a pace well suited to their ability. There is always scope for movement to ensure that students are in the correct set at all times. There is additional support both in and out of class, with numerous revision programmes and revision lessons available.

Wealth of support:

We also have a wealth of support provided by our excellent teaching assistants, who not only offer help within lessons, but also extract students for small group work.

In short, St Mary's Maths Department offers the ideal environment for all our students to succeed.

GCSE Homework Lessons
