The appointment of Kevin Bissoon to the position of head of maths is credited with helping to turn around the schools fortunes in that subject. In the following 7 films, Kevin and teachers from the maths faculty discuss the ways in which they feel the department has improves as a result of this highly collaborative approach and how in turn, this has led to a better working environment for teachers and students alike.
