  • to reinforce and further develop in the young person the knowledge, understanding, skills and competencies acquired at primary level;
    develop the young person’s personal and social confidence, initiative and competence through a broad, well-balanced general education;
  • to develop an appreciation of the power and beauty of mathematics and of the manner in which it provides a useful and efficient system for the formulation and solution of problems.
  • prepare the young person for the requirements of further programmes of study, of employment or of life outside full-time education.
