Further information

What is the Maths department like?

The Maths department is located in its own teaching block which houses a suite of 8 modern, bright and spacious classrooms. Each classroom has a multi-media projector and interactive whiteboard which is linked to the college network and internet. In addition, there is also a computer suite and a fully resourced student work base.

What support will I receive?

Each student’s needs are continually assessed and monitored throughout the year. Formal tutorials are then in place to address the specific problems students are having. Students also get a great deal of individual support from their tutors who regularly give up their free time. At exams time the department also runs a much valued comprehensive series of revision tutorials to supplement a student’s own revision programme. No Maths student at Carmel is ever struggling for support at this critical time in the academic year.
