S. Anselm's School

Mathematics

Mathematics is taught to children at S.Anselm's in sets from the age of 7.

Children work towards Common Entrance and Scholarship exams and our flexible setting arrangements ensures that everyone is correctly placed. The mathematics results at the school in recent years have been particularly pleasing.

Children attempt regular practice papers to make sure they are used to the examinations that are coming there way, yet we never lose sight of the fact that there is more to life than exams!

A variety of teaching styles are used and we are fortunate to have interactive whiteboards in a number of the classrooms where maths is taught. We also have all the latest textbooks geared towards Common Entrance, Scholarship and Key Stage 3 level.

Children at the school take part in the Primary Mathematics Challenge each year and the UK Junior Mathematics Challenge.
