What is it to be a Mathematician at Marriotts?

A determined, hardworking and passionate team of teachers who strive to share their excitement for mathematics with all students delivers mathematics at Marriotts School. The mathematics curriculum at Marriotts School is designed to deepen students’ understanding of core mathematical principles through a mastery approach; which focuses learning onto the ‘why’ of mathematics. The curriculum focuses on developing students in three strands of mathematical thinking – fluency, reasoning and problem solving – so that the key skills and processes learnt in the classroom can be applied to practical, real-world scenarios.

Mathematics is an important subject that has the capacity to enable us to think more deeply and intuitively about the wider world. The study of Mathematics is not just about learning the core content, but also about training students’ to think logically and approach problems with resilience and the tools to unpick the problem and find a solution.

Students who are comfortable and confident with mathematics are able to develop critical thinking skills enabling them to effectively problem-solve and solution-find. Young people who are able to leave school with these skills are better equipped to be numerate in multiple settings across society and are able to flourish in a variety of fields.
