A Sheffield secondary has received a top national award for the quality of its maths classes.

High Storrs at Bents Green has been given the Prince’s Teaching Institute Mark for its work to promote maths in school and across the city.

The scheme was launched in 2007 to recognise schools developing inspirational ideas and activities in a variety of subjects.

High Storrs’ maths department has worked with other primary and secondary schools in the area on projects involving the subject with other parts of the curriculum.

These have included Maths in Art and one based around the 2012 Olympics.

The school has also invited in guest speakers, including Dr James Grime who led codebreaking workshops for Year 8s.
