Maths

'Mathematics is a beautiful, open, creative, and multi-dimensional subject. But school mathematics is often uninspiring, procedural and one-dimensional – it is all about memorizing methods and procedures. The narrowness of the mathematics taught in schools is one of the reasons so many students disengage from mathematics. One-dimensional mathematics is not the mathematics of the world and it is not the mathematics of our 21st century workplace.' Jo Boaler

Maths at Millfield Prep aims to establish confidence and engagement with the subject at every ability level and gives access to multi-dimensional mathematics. Precise thinking is produced by using creativity, openness, visualisation and flexibility to bring the subject alive for pupils. Inspiring teachers, small class sizes, one to one support, small group work, the Maths Academy for top academics, and many competition opportunities helps to achieve this.

We believe that everyone can do well in maths and we apply a growth mindset approach to promote learning and improvement for all in this fascinating subject.
