The Mathematics Department aims to encourage and develop independent thinking and logical problem solving skills, equipping all students with the mathematical skills essential for everyday life. Challenging tasks for all students ensure they are pushing the limits of their ability, building a resilience which is transferable across all subjects and aspects of life.
As passionate mathematicians we encourage our students to see mathematics the way we do, as an art. As well as the abundant functionality, we see the underlying beauty of the subject and the patterns and puzzles and problems it provides. Why does this happen? Will it always happen? How can I prove it? If we created mathematics, how do we not know everything about it? Was it discovered or created? This is the curiosity we aim to foster in mathematics.
