Independent study is a process, a method and a cornerstone of Mathematics in our school.  It is the process in which a student acquires the ability for inquiry and critical evaluation and it includes freedom of choice in determining how to solve problems.

Pupil Voice:


"I understand the importance of working independently in our Maths lessons. It is vital that we work on our hotspots in order to become better at the subject and, one of the best ways to do this is to work on our own to show what we know. This is important because, from there, we know, using hotspots, what to work on in order to take the next step in our journeys to becoming outstanding mathematicians." - Olivia
