Maths

Mathematics equips pupils with uniquely powerful ways to describe, analyse and change the world. It can stimulate moments of pleasure and wonder for all pupils when they solve a problem for the first time, discover a more elegant solution, or notice hidden connections. Pupils who are functional in mathematics and financially capable are able to think independently in applied and abstract ways, and can reason, solve problems and assess risk.

Come and visit our Maths Department. We can even guess your birthday!

 

 

Music

This is achieved by bringing the students into contact with the fundamental activities of listening, appraising, performing and composing.
