Pac-Maths

Our vision is that students in Maths are:

Why Pac-Maths?
  • Enjoying their lessons
  • 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!

We have a strong and supportive Maths team that is committed to student learning. We focus on teaching Maths in a way which engages students, using tailored resources to strengthen their understanding and encourage them to ask questions that drive their learning forward.
