Mathematics at The Marlborough School

Vision

The Marlborough Mathematics department offers all students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of mathematics, to solve problems and clearly communicate their solutions. Every student is given access to an ambitious and challenging curriculum at a pace suited to them and has the chance to develop resilience and confidence in their mathematics through exposure to learning new maths skills and applying them to problem solving situations.

By becoming more confident mathematicians, students will better understand the world around them and solve problems that they encounter. Students will have the opportunity to mathematically reason both verbally and in their written work through class discussion and carefully selected tasks. They will revisit skills they have already developed both in class and through our online weekly homework, which will reinforce prior learning and help to consolidate new skills.
