To think mathematically is to think in an ordered and comprehensive way. A mind able to think mathematically is a mind ready for the opportunities and challenges of the world.
At the centre of our approach to the teaching of maths is a commitment to nurturing excellence in our students. Our maths programme aims to develop in our students a mastery of mathematical principles alongside the ability to think logically and to document methodology well.
Central to our approach is the concept of mathematical storytelling. We teach students how to understand and communicate the underlying narrative of mathematical problem-solving. Students thus come to appreciate the importance of logic and strong communication skills in mathematical study
The real-world and practical applications of mathematical concepts are brought to life in our lessons, which are designed to give students an understanding of topics from first principles to mastery. It is for this reason that, wherever possible, the maths programme is taught in synergy with the life and physical sciences allowing students to see the links between the disciplines.
