Teaching and Learning
Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School has a challenging and academic curriculum which is appropriate for the needs of our pupils. Information on the specific curriculum each year follows can be found in the information about each key stage. Our approach to teaching is characterised by unwavering high expectations of both our staff and our pupils. Teachers are all specialists in their fields and there is nearly no teaching outside of subject specialist areas. Teaching does not follow a prescribed formula. Teachers are encouraged to be creative and flexible in their approaches with the emphasis on ensuring pupils make rapid and sustained progress in their knowledge, understanding and skills. Our own evaluations, pupil surveys, parental questionnaires and the school’s exceptional outcomes all point to teaching being highly effective across all departments.
