Welcome to the Mathematics area

Head of Department – Ms E. Jervis

Our aim is to equip every student with a deep understanding and enjoyment of mathematics and enable them to undertake everyday tasks essential for keeping safe, healthy and maintaining their own social well-being.
The department’s numeracy programme will enable all individuals to think independently and to possess the problem solving skills necessary to allow them to progress in their chosen careers.
