Mathematics helps us to solve practical problems, to understand how the world around us works, and to develop our ability to use reason and logic. 

More than this, studying Maths offers pupils the opportunity to experience huge satisfaction after persevering with a concept or problem, and the chance to start to see the inherent beauty in the subject. We aim to develop both understanding and interest in pupils of all ages, instilling good mathematical habits and encouraging pupils to see the vital applications of Maths in other contexts. Academic excellence is always our focus, and we are delighted that the boys continue to perform so well in the rigorous external examinations.
