Maths

Throughout the school, the pupils are encouraged to engage their mathematical knowledge into problem solving.

In the earlier years, we work hard on our mental maths to gain a solid understanding of number. We cover the national curriculum and advance the pupils thinking through games, working cooperatively in activities as well as bringing real life problems so they can visualise and add meaning to their learning. We prepare the pupils for examinations, create building a solid foundation of mathematical knowledge and create confident independent thinkers. In Years 3 & 4, the pupils have five 1 hour lessons each day as well as 1 hour a week practicing reasoning. From Years 5 – 8, the pupils have four 1 hour lessons a week.
