Head of Department: Mrs H Fraser BSc PGCE (East Anglia)
Mathematics is one of the key subjects in the curriculum of ALL pupils and do not let anyone tell you differently!! At St Edmund’s we try to ensure that all pupils receive a thorough mathematical education, tailored to each pupil’s ability and sufficiently rigorous to enable them to realise their full potential but that most of all they enjoy their Mathematics’ lessons.
Past examination results and the popularity of the subject at A Level and beyond show that we are very successful in achieving our aim.
Facilities and Resources
The Mathematics’ Department has a suite of four specialised Mathematics’ rooms; these are recently constructed and provide a large and bright teaching environment where pupils’ work can be seen displayed throughout the year.
Classes have access to computing facilities linked to the network, which can be booked as the need arises for whole-class activities or individual work.
Students of all ages are invited annually to take part in the UK Schools ‘Mathematics’ Challenges. Many students each year gain awards at Gold, Silver and Bronze levels.
We also send a team of students from Year 8 and 9 to London to compete in the National UKMC Competition, Enterprising Mathematics. Here they can put all their newly-found mathematical skills to practical use and whether they win or lose, everybody gains something new from the experience and has a great time!
