The Faculty consists of eight specialist teachers, a mathematics HLTA and two trainee teachers. There is support from the Leadership team and a comprehensive CPD programme. The mathematics staff work area is the ’hub’ for sharing good/ outstanding resources and all team members are more than willing to go the extra mile to support each other.
The mathematics classrooms are resourced with interactive whiteboards (supporting ActivInspire software). The mathematics department is an excellent and supporting teaching and learning environment.
