The Maths Department has recently purchased a subscription for the websites www.mathsworkout.co.uk and www.numeracyworkout.co.uk
These website are great to use for short bursts of revision and we recommend pupils use them regularly at home to practise their maths and numeracy skills.
Pupils can get the username and password for the sites from their maths teacher.
