Mathematics Team

Casterton College

The Award for Outstanding School Team of the Year

Casterton, Rutland

This team are living proof that British children can do maths as well as any children in the world. They also show that everyone can do maths, regardless of race, religion, or gender and irrespective of disadvantage, providing they have the right teaching environment.

The Casterton maths department take children of all current abilities, including many disadvantaged children, and they turn them into champions. They make maths a pleasure to learn, and a joy to teach and they work as one, sharing the problems and the plaudits, because they are led by an exceptional head of department blessed with an exceptional team.

Parents and pupils eulogise alike; they are a quite extraordinary group of people and an example of teamwork at its very best.
