We have a strong track record of pupils achieving outstanding results; we are consistently well above the National Average for English and Maths and our Progress measures are significantly positive. In 2016 Mathematics achieved 81% A* - C, and 27% A* - A. This year 30% of pupils achieved the A* or A grades in 5 or more subjects and 54% achieved the English Baccalaureate.

We can offer an experienced, supportive Mathematics team of 13 staff. Also as a department we are keen to embrace new practices for teaching Mathematics, and can offer 13 specialist teaching rooms with electronic whiteboards and a dedicated Maths ICT suite. We run a range of extra-curricular events, challenges and trips linked with local STEM centres. The department is a strategic partner of the Cambridge Maths Hub, working with the hub to offer CPD for maths teachers throughout the county and beyond.

  • Well-motivated and engaged students;

  • access to our exceptional Teaching School CPD programme
  • support for staff who wish to pursue a Masters in Education in their second year with us.
