• Numeracy is one of our main school priorities, not just in this subject but across the curriculum.
  • We celebrate World Maths Day each year and enter students into the UKMT Maths Challenge at all levels!
  • Students have the opportunity to play chess at breaktimes and lunchtimes, as well as join a dedicated club.
  • Mathematics remains very popular at A level, and we also offer further mathematics to allow students to push themselves.
The mathematics department aims to develop within students a confidence for using mathematical procedures and a love of problem solving questions. We recognise the importance of numeracy skills across the curriculum and aim to develop these skills so that our students can critically analyse data from a science experiment, interpret information from a graph in geography, or estimate lengths and weights in design and technology lessons.

Having strong number skills is associated with improved health, financial security and happiness in later life. At Isleworth & Syon, we are equally as proud of the fact that we are preparing our boys for a better future as we are of our strong examination results and the number of boys who go on to study mathematics at university.

We run a variety of activities for students outside of the classroom. These include:

  • UK Maths Challenge activities (Junior, Intermediate, Senior)
  • Team mathematics competitions
  • KS3 PPA club
