Mathematics is one of the core subjects for all pupils in S1 to S4. Although Mathematics is not compulsory in S5 and S6, many students continue their study of mathematics to gain qualifications to equip them for life, further learning and the world of work.


Our main departmental aim is to prepare students to become successful learners and confident individuals and enable them to take their place in society, by providing them with the mathematical skills and numerical skills required to do so.
