# Maths

Mathematics is the ubiquitous language that holds solutions to a wide range of problems. The skills learnt at here will be used to further education, inspire research and to pay your gas bill. Mathematics can describe how the planets orbit the sun, the optimum size for a drinks bottle and to budget for your personal finances.

Not all areas of maths are useful or accessible to all, what we will do is allow the students to discover the importance of the subject for their individual needs whilst guiding them to an important qualification. The school will offer a scheme of work to a learner led audience.

A typical maths lesson will not be didactic or conventional; it will provide an opportunity to explore functional problems as well as discuss abstract concepts. We will offer the opportunity to innovate and research as well as offer the support and guidance to those whom the subject does not come naturally.
