Mathematics inspires students to make excellent progress in all areas of the curriculum. Through positive teaching and learning we can ensure learners can apply Mathematics to real life. Developing a positive attitude to Mathematics, including confidence, enjoyment and perseverance is a fundamental aim of the school. We have a clear ethos to challenge all students, raise attainment and celebrate achievement. At Wythenshawe Campus we cater to the individual needs of each student, by doing so we can ensure that every student can maximise their attainment. As a school we are committed to ensuring that every student has a positive experience of learning Mathematics, make continuous progress and are challenged to achieve to their full potential.
We achieve this through excellent teaching, using a variety of resources that stimulate and engage students. Students are taught in a creative environment, using interactive activities and incorporating the latest technologies. We regularly review our teaching methods and materials to ensure that they give our students an excellent understanding of how numbers fit together, how Mathematics is relevant to everyday life and equip our students with the ability to use concepts and skills with confidence. We provide students with opportunities to work in pairs or groups to think strategically and communicate mathematically with others. Our commitment to these aims will ensure that we continue to build on our successes.
