Maths is taught in dedicated blocks within the Early Years timetable with up to an hour of mathematical related activities taking place each day. This is done in a more practical way in the Early Years but our assessment data shows that our students are thriving in maths, not only way above the National Average but against the Independent sector as well. Problem solving, self-initiated learning activities teach them to think for themselves and to adapt their numeracy skills to everyday situations.
Once the children move into Key Stage 1 they have a firm grasp of mathematics and this is built upon in a more formal setting. Key concepts are consolidated and problem solving taught alongside reasoning. Concrete and differentiated learning takes place in each lesson with excellent reasonable adjustment being made for each child.
Our boys access many outstanding Prep Schools through a competitive entry process, so their mathematical skills reach a very high level. Recent assessment data shows 91% of our boys are making expected, good or excellent progress in maths. Like all subject areas confidence is key in maths and we have intervention groups running each week to target teach the boys ensuring maximum progression.
