We aim to ensure all students have opportunities to become fluent in mathematical skills and techniques such that they are able to consider the world around them in a confident, quantitative respect.

They will be able to see relationships and be equipped with the tools to describe and calculate within their world. They will be challenged to think deeply and to use mathematics to lead richer lives. Real-world examples are used as hooks. Abstract ideas are introduced as soon as the student is ready.  


The study of mathematics is a fundamental part of a balanced education.

It promotes a powerful universal language, analytical reasoning and problem-solving skills that contribute to the development of logical, abstract and critical thinking. Mathematics can help make sense of the world and allows phenomena to be described in precise terms. It promotes careful analysis and the search for patterns and relationships, skills necessary for success both inside and outside the classroom. Mathematics, then, should be accessible to, and studied by, all students. 


Our teaching is inquiry-based, concept-driven, contextualized, collaborative, differentiated and informed by assessment. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view and encourage our students to reflect and be willing to grow from the experience. 

Students in math are taught to approach uncertainty with forethought and determination; to be comfortable to work independently or cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We seek to grow a resourceful and resilient mindset in the face of challenges and change.

FORM, LOGIC and RELATIONSHIPS serve as the three big themes in mathematics which facilitate connection between topics. They also serve as links across other subject groups. We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research.
