Quality counts

Like many schools across the area, St Hilda’s School participated in the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark and attained silver.

The school has a history of promoting numeracy through UKMT events, maths leaders award, Rubik’s cube club, and regular calendar fixtures for fun and fundraising such as NSPCC number day, world pi day and maths party day.

Year 8 and 9 pupils also enjoyed code box workshops by solving puzzles to undo the locks. Mini maths leaders made a video of their ‘supersize’ bar chart constructed from national numeracy certificates achieved by staff and parents.

Maths competitions are also part of the ‘school diet’ with weekly maths challenges, parents evening puzzles, quizzes organised by students, all with house points for the winners.
