• Alsop High School Educate Magazine Numeracy ambassadors

It’s only a number!

Following the historic visit of the Mr Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England to Alsop High School, the school has announced the appointment of their new team numeracy ambassadors.

Mr Carney had challenged students to “pick opportunities that help you learn and grow as a person and to follow your passions.” He told them “You can do it!”

The school were delighted that Alsop students have taken up the challenge of Mr Carney and that they want to promote numeracy around the school. They now have a dedicated team of numeracy ambassadors working as part of our “Alsop Counts” numeracy strategy.

They met with the headteacher, Mr Mangan to discuss their important new role around school and were keen to explain their responsibilities, including the promotion of weekly maths puzzles and encouraging teachers to highlight any maths used in their lessons.

Mr Mangan said: “It was a pleasure to meet with a fantastic group of students. They spoke confidently about why numeracy is important and they shared their ideas for promoting the use of numbers. I was very impressed with their enthusiasm and their determination to promote this new initiative.”
