Mathematics is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most jobs. Receiving a good maths education provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and the power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

At Spires Academy, we help our students develop fluency so that they can select appropriate strategies, reason mathematically and solve mathematical problems. The subject content is broken into five main areas; number, algebra, ratio and proportion, geometry and measures and data handling.
