Shenfield High School

MATHEMATICS


Philosophy and aims


Our two main aims are to:

  • Equip and enable
    Equip students with the skills they need to enable them to understand numbers and statistics in their adult lives.
  • Challenge and inspire
    Challenge students by providing them with opportunities to discover the beauty and awe of mathematics, inspiring them to pursue further study of the subject beyond school. We regularly enter students in the UKMT Maths Challenges.

Our dedicated and skilled team of teachers work collaboratively to deliver a mathematics curriculum which gives a sound base of key skills, engages and then stretches and challenges our students.
