The Mathematics Department at Newbridge House aims to develop each student to their full potential. We provide challenging, varied and interesting lessons so that the pupils enjoy their work, often using games, IT resources and practical activities.

Our scheme of work is developed using guidance from the Department of Education and the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics and adapted to fully support the mathematical learning of all pupils. 

An emphasis is placed on identifying any gaps that pupils may have in their mathematical understanding and supporting pupils to overcome these difficulties, especially problems that may arise with number skills. Pupils are also helped to apply their skills to everyday life through problem solving activities and as far as possible the full range of topics are explored. In Key Stage 4 we offer a number of academic qualifications with students encouraged to achieve a GCSE qualification. We also offer Entry Level courses where appropriate.

At key stages 3 and 4 lessons are taught by qualified maths teachers with over 50 years combined experience teaching the subject. At key stage 2 pupils are taught by specialist primary staff. Pupils have three lessons per week on their timetable across key stages 3 and 4. At key stage 2 maths is timetabled daily.

If you would like to support your child with their maths at home, you can try the websites below or you can contact your child’s maths teacher who can support you with this.

Practical activities around the house can be done at all ages and help to reinforce real life maths skills. These can include cooking, shopping using cash, identifying shapes, telling the time and highlighting times when they use maths in everyday activities.
