Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.
Why Study Maths?
Our Maths Clinic is held two lunchtimes a week, and is when staff and Sixth Form pupils are on-hand to give extra individual help. Over a hundred pupils enter the UK Intermediate and/or Senior Maths Challenge each year, which leads to the UK Maths Olympiads and Team Maths Challenges.
Pupils develop a high level of competency, knowledge and ability in mathematics. Teachers have high expectations of pupils from Year 9 onwards and these younger pupils are already working successfully on concepts at the higher level of IGCSE.
The Only Subject that Counts...
King's has a strong history of success in a number of national maths challenges. The Senior Mathematical Challenge is a 90-minute, multiple-choice competition for pupils across the UK. It encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems. These problems are designed to make pupils think. Most are accessible, yet still challenge those with more experience. Our pupils regularly come away with gold, silver and bronze awards each year.
