The Mathematics faculty comprises Mathematics and Information Communications Technology (ICT).
Pupils at the College benefit from a dedicated Maths IT Room meaning all pupils receive at least one computer-based lesson per week. Mathematics has grown in popularity as an A-Level choice over the past years, thanks to the dedicated and enthusiastic teaching team who make maths enjoyable.
There are several ICT suites for all pupils to access and the faculty encourage pupils to take part in local and national Mathematics competitions, to further enhance and broaden their Mathematical knowledge and experience.
Pupils benefit from extra curricular opportunities offered at the College, with IT Club and the Website Club being of specific interest to those who wish to further their ICT knowledge, as well as extra curricular Maths subject club.
Popular and vibrant, Maths Club takes place in Maths 5 (ICT) every morning and Tuesday and Thursday after school. It is open to all pupils as either a “drop in” for help with homework or as a regular club for pupils to attend and keep on top of their studies.
Typically, pupils in examination classes work through past examination papers whilst younger pupils use websites such as www.mymaths.co.uk. Some pupils, however, use it to extend their Maths knowledge beyond the curriculum: this is perhaps most prevalent prior to UKMT Maths Challenges.
