At HPFS we aim to provide a mathematical experience that prepares students for the workplace, for further education and the mathematical literacy and problem solving skills needed in life. We strive to enable students to develop the confidence to learn through making mistakes and reflecting effectively on their learning. This is accomplished through teachers’ commitment to excellence in teaching, a well-designed curriculum and a supportive environment where students take pride in their work and progress.
We expect our students to take responsibility for their learning. An example of this is the “Target Homework” approach at Key Stage 4, where students choose their own weekly homework task based on their areas of development. This teaches them to take responsibility but empowers them in driving their own learning.
