Overview

Just as languages provide the building blocks and rules we need to communicate, maths uses its own language, made up of numbers, symbols and formulas, to explore the rules we need to measure or identify essential problems like distance, speed, time, space, change, force and quantities.

Maths helps us find patterns and structure in our lives. Practically, Maths helps us put a price on things, create graphics , build websites, build skyscrapers and generally understand how things work or predict how they might change over time and under different conditions.

Assessments and enrolment will take place on a Monday (term time only) between 1pm -5pm

There may still be a possibility to enrol to the GCSE programme providing you have a strong outcome from your BKSB Assessment.
