The Mathematics Department runs the UK Junior and Intermediate Maths Challenge every year. This is run by the UK Mathematics Trust, aimed at those in Year 7-11. It gives students the opportunity to deepen their ability to problem solve and get a certificate of Bronze, Silver or Gold.
Some year 10 students have been able to visit the University of Kent to take part in a Mathematics Circle Event. They were introduced to some exciting and interesting Mathematics over two days.
Revision sessions are run on various afternoons, so students can be given help with a topic they might struggle with, provided with some challenges, or to prepare for examinations.
Extended Opportunities For Learning
The department subscribe to two internet programmes (MyMaths and Hegarty) which are both brilliant resources aimed at all Key Stages. The programmes contain online lessons, videos, challenges, class tests and games. Students will be set homework’s on these programmes.
