Why Pac-Maths?

• Engaged in learning Maths

• Confident to tackle work

• Resilient to overcome challenges

• Making real progress in their understanding every lesson

• Real world application of Maths

• It engages our students & appeals to them (both male & female)

• It is a bit of fun, which we believe is important in Maths!

Ofsted say:

"Students' progress is good in a range of GCSE subjects, especially mathematics, where students of all abilities approach their work with confidence."
