Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. At Boldon School we aim to tap into that creativity to solve a host of problems both numerical and otherwise and range of contexts. We aim to provide students with the tools they need that are essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world.

We aim to inspire students through a variety of activities and learning opportunities both in and out of the classroom that include treasure hunts, card sorts, mathematical games and simulations to deepen there mathematical understanding and to reasoning. We revisit topics throughout the 5-year course to consolidate understanding and encourage students to link their work with other areas to extend their thinking. We have a strong focus on developing problem-solving skills alongside mathematical content to ensure we develop resilient, independent learners ready to tackle GCSE and A level maths.
