Mathematics is a beautiful subject which has its own unique place in the curriculum. It provides pupils with powerful ways to describe, analyse and change the world. Pupils can experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve a problem for the first time, discover a more elegant solution and make links between different areas of mathematics.
Mathematics is the means of looking at the patterns that make up our world and the intricate and beautiful ways in which they are constructed and realised. The language of mathematics is international. The subject transcends cultural boundaries and its importance
is universally recognised. Mathematics helps us to understand and change the world.
Pupils at St. Nicholas Priory study mathematics to become functioning adults who are able to think mathematically enabling them to use the four operations fluently, reason, solve problems and assess risk in a range of contexts.
