Mathematics

Mathematics is taught by specialist teachers and classrooms are located in one area of the school. The mathematics department at Broughton is regarded as one of the most successful mathematics departments in Lancashire. We also rate very highly in National figures and GCSE results have been outstanding year on year. Pupils enjoy learning in the department and accept the challenges set by teachers who have high expectations of each and every student.

Approaches to Teaching and Learning in Mathematics

Pupils learn in a variety of ways in mathematics and the syllabus content is supplemented with problem solving work. Pupils are encouraged to enquire and communicate in lessons. They work individually and in pairs/groups. Pupils have a rigid structure of homework tasks to complete. Classes get a mixture of written and online tasks each week for their homework. Online tasks are set on the award winning Hegarty Maths platform. Our more able pupils are entered for competitions, for example, the UKMT Challenge which is organised by Leeds University.
