### Welcome

Welcome to the Maths Intervention Class web page.

Here we will record the work done to help you target a Grade 5 in your GCSE Maths next summer.

Two short sessions per week cannot substitute for the learning you can achieve during the 4 lessons per week you have with your Maths teacher. It is the commitment you show in those lessons that will be the most important factor in determining your eventual grade. View intervention sessions as an opportunity to consolidate and put into practice what you learn in your normal Maths lessons.
