The Mathematics curriculum is enriched with many extra-curricular activities including booster classes for GCSE students, competitions, puzzles and external visits to the Keele University Mathematics Department. We also are able to provide intervention via team teaching sessions in normal timetabled lessons and also from the head of department during form time.
The department has delivered exciting and innovative projects as part of Creative Learning Week which includes collaborative projects with both the Computer Science and Technology departments. The ‘Create a Computer Game’ project is always well attended. A range of unique themed learning events such as Pi Day, a Code Breaking Challenge Day, Fairtrade Maths and Olympic Maths have all proved popular and stimulating.
