The study of Mathematics develops the imagination, building clear and logical thought processes. It allows us to challenge difficult ideas and unsolved problems, striving for simplification to finding the right concepts and methods to bring structure, making difficult things easier to explain and develop further. Everyone in the Maths Faculty has a passion to share and develop these important skills in others. Students and teachers of Mathematics enjoy its challenge, its clarity, and the fact that you know when you are right. Developing the solution to a problem has an excitement and a satisfaction that we all thrive on. Whether in a classroom environment, working in the more informal drop in sessions after school or developing ideas with a single student, help is always keenly available.
We are all aware that as society becomes more technically dependent, there is an increasing requirement for people with a high level of mathematical training. Analytical and quantitative skills are sought by a wide range of employers.
The skills we strive to develop with our students provide them with expertise in problem solving, logical reasoning and flexible thinking. Mathematics has a pervasive influence on our everyday lives and we are passionate to share this, enabling students to progress to careers that are exciting, challenging and diverse in nature.
