Mathematics

Our curriculum includes a strong focus on Numeracy, where we show students how useful and interesting Maths can be.

We provide children with the ability to apply maths to real life situations, and give them a confidence in using numbers, measurements and data handling to solve problems and make informed financial and data decisions.
