Maths is the Language of the universe and a hallmark of success

Mathematics is essential for everyday life and understanding our world. At Thomas Becket Catholic School, we strive to develop accurate, efficient, and flexible problem solvers to increase their reasoning abilities. This will be done by providing authentic and rigorous problem-solving opportunities that lead to engaging student-to-student discussions facilitated by teachers through carefully planned questions.

The Mathematics department believes in the potential of every student; hence the vision of the department is to develop the mindset and mathematical skills which will enable students to select the correct process to assess and solve mathematical problems.

By building a sense of trust, love and respect within the department, students will achieve qualifications to pursue a fulfilling career in order to contribute positively to their communities and be active, global citizens.

Students will develop the skills to use digital tools appropriately to explore mathematical problems.

In the Mathematics department, every student matters and we continue to strive to help students achieve their very best through excellent learning and teaching which links to our mission and vision of the school.
