At Lanesborough we follow the National Curriculum for Mathematics and the National Numeracy strategy. Boys are entered for National Key Stage tests at the age of 11 and later at the age of 13 for Common Entrance Examination for senior school. The importance of the subject is clear. What we aim to achieve along with strong examination results, is to instill in the boys a real understanding for and an enjoyment of the subject. In order to achieve this we offer, in addition to normal lessons, maths clubs for the most able and for those who might need a helping hand. Annual challenges are organised with the opportunity to compete against other schools.
In the recent inspection report, mathematics was recognised as a strength of the school and we hope to continue to teach pupils good basic number skills and produce young men who are confident and able in this all-important academic and recreational subject.
