AIR Force one plus Air Force two equals Air Force three.

Schools in Wrexham have been benefiting from extra maths tuition thanks to the Royal Air Force.

RAF personnel have been visiting Ysgol Bryn Alyn and Castell Alun schools as part of their maths workshop tour.

The lessons are designed to help students improve their GCSE maths by presenting the subject in a real-life, engaging and fun environment.

The tour is part of the RAF Careers Maths Education Programme. Now in its fourth year, the programme provides maths teachers with valuable support in the delivery of the national curriculum by offering students motivating and interactive experiences.

Within the workshops, different topics from the maths curriculum are explored through various careers within the RAF to demonstrate how maths is used at work.

The workshop leaders are qualified maths teachers and have been specifically trained for the tour.

Group Captain Dawn McCafferty, at the RAF Inspectorate of Recruiting, said: 'Putting maths into a real life context has proved enormously helpful in getting students engaged with maths, and teachers have really welcomed this.

'Employers are crying out for new recruits to have the basic numeracy skills required for day to day work and our resources help to achieve this.'
