At DL we strive to make Maths lessons creative as well as interactive so the girls are involved in the learning process. They are encouraged to challenge their understanding through problem-solving and investigative work; in this way they learn to reason more effectively. We aim to make Maths challenging, but fun and accessible to all!
In Years Four to Six, the girls take part in Maths Races when we compete against other schools from across the county. In addition to this, we host our very own Schools at Somerhill Maths Race which is always very well attended and an exciting afternoon of friendly competition. Our girls thoroughly enjoy their involvement in national and local mathematics challenges which develop confidence and enthusiasm for the subject.
As our girls move on to several different secondary schools (both maintained and independent), they are well-prepared for all 11+ and Common Entrance exams. We enjoy a great deal of success in this subject and DL girls leave Year Six as capable, confident mathematicians.
