We aim to deliver the highest quality education to our students and develop a love for the subjects they study. To do so, we must ensure we are at the forefront of educational developments and teaching practice, and providing students with the tools to succeed.
In Mathematics we have established Leaders Improving Mathematics Education (LIME). Funded by Oldham Council, it raises the quality of learning and teaching across the borough by exploring and sharing the best Maths teaching & resources from around the country.
Leaders in Maths education travel from around the country to the school to run events, supporting teachers in primary, secondary and further education with their professional development and teaching practice. We hope that through the collaboration of all key stages, children make the most of their educational journey with the same methods and consistent messages leading to consistent excellence.
We believe in ‘collaboration not competition’ to ensure that students across Oldham succeed in their maths studies, not just at our own school. Teacher feedback has been exceptional. Staff from outside Oldham travel just to attend these events at our school! The LIME network model has proved so successful that it now also runs in Salford and Blackburn!
Teachers who have attended the Oldham LIME events have said,
“It really gave us a new insight into new teaching methods and how to move forwards and help our students to progress in a much smoother and inclusive manner. Without your school hosting these events, none of this would be possible.“
“It’s great to have these maths-specific inset sessions, several members of our department attend and they always provoke good discussions afterwards.”
“Great ideas offered and useful techniques for making an exciting experience for pupils.”
