Life at The Sele School Life at The Sele School Life at The Sele School Life at The Sele School


The department believes that all students have the capacity for mathematical understanding. Students have the opportunity to study mathematics in a variety of contexts and are encouraged to apply their skills in other subjects and beyond the classroom. 

At The Sele School we place great emphasis on mental methods and students develop strategies through oral or mental starters to each lesson. We also use a variety of maths related programs in the computer suites, and in class and these help to visualise some of the maths concepts.

Year 7 students are taught in sets, which have been determined by teacher assessment. Work is differentiated to take account of the ability levels of our students, extra support is provided for the lower ability and challenging activities and resources are available for the more able students. 

Regular assessment takes place throughout the year and parents are informed of progress via Academic Review Days and Reports.
