The Mathematics Department aims to equip all students with the tools solve problems and think analytically. We want all students to leave with the skills to carry out day to day activities that involve the use of mathematics.  Students will benefit from experienced, passionate teachers who enjoy their subject and have an invested interest in getting the most out of their god given talents.
