Opportunities

Wednesday Maths Club

Every Wednesday afternoon from 3:15 p.m. – 4.00 p.m.  The Maths Department offers “Maths Club” to students, where they can come and get help with their homework, assignments or general understanding. This is conducted by Maths staff and the Maths Captains.

Maths Captains

Maths Captains are appointed in Year 13 and their role is to support the Maths Department. They do this by attending KS3 classes and helping students, organise and promote “Maths Club” and help “World of Maths Day”.
