All schools and colleges have a responsibility to prepare students for the modern workforce and the needs of their wider lives.
Students with a GCSE 4+ who do no maths in Years 12 and 13 often need maths at university or in their careers.

This workgroup is being run by Ingrid Kosch at Teddington School and 5 schools are involved in the workgroup.
