"There is no doubt this is a very special school with fantastic facilities and fantastic teachers who make all the difference. It's just a shame that every school in the country cannot be like Bolton School."

Mathematics

By using a variety of teaching and learning styles we make sure that all our pupils enjoy their daily maths lesson regardless of ability. Whole class and group teaching are central to every lesson and the children's learning is supported by an extensive range of practical resources.  We also encourage our pupils to ask mathematical questions as well as to answer them!

All our classes contain children of differing abilities in maths. We recognise this fact, providing appropriate tasks for each individual and help from our Learning Support Assistants wherever it is required. By using a range of strategies we are able to provide encouragement and reinforcement for the less confident while extending those who enjoy the challenge of more demanding tasks.

I find mathematics challenging in a fun way.  It really makes you think.
