Additional Information:

It is vital that students view Mathematics as a relevant activity with links to the world outside school and our teaching aims to encourage this attitude. The department aims to interest and motivate students by using a wide variety of approaches. These include whole class teaching; group work; individualised work; investigative work; practical work; and the use of ICT.

All students have been given a username and password for the following websites to aid their learning.  Please contact your child’s Maths teacher if you have any questions.

www.mymaths.co.uk (Students can use this website to complete homework or revise key topics)

www.kerboodle.com (This gives students access to the textbooks that we use in lessons and also access to invispen tutorials)

Computer Science is the study of computation and computational thinking, and how they are applied in the design and development of computer systems.  Information and Communication Technology (ICT) focuses on the creative and productive use of technology and computer systems.
