As a result we have created a mastery curriculum for all year groups and have an hour per week allocated to us to collaboratively develop this practice. The department is a strategic partner of the Cambridge Maths Hub, working with the hub to offer CPD for maths teachers throughout the county and beyond. We can offer 12 specialist teaching rooms with electronic whiteboards and a dedicated Maths ICT suite. We run a range of extra-curricular events, challenges and trips linked with local STEM centres.

New ideas and approaches are welcomed, and we encourage staff to trial new working practices.
We have a strong track record of pupils achieving outstanding results; we are consistently well above the National Average for English and Maths and our Progress measures are significantly positive. In 2016 Mathematics achieved 81% A* - C, and 27% A* - A. This year 30% of pupils achieved A* or A grades in 5 or more subjects and 54% achieved the English Baccalaureate.
