Catch Up with Numeracy

For Year 7 students who have not achieved a score of 100 in KS2.


Catch up with NUMERACY is specifically for Year 7 students who have not achieved a score of 100 in KS2.

The workshop can be booked any time during Year 7 – or indeed as a summer school transition course - for groups of up to 30 students in a classroom or venue of your choice.

Importantly funding for this programme is available through the ‘Year 7 Catch Up Premium’.


Building on the momentum created in your school, Catch up with NUMERACY allows students to experience different techniques and discover new ways of achieving maths targets they previously believed to be beyond them.

Since March 2000, schools all over the UK have relied on us to help their students reach their full potential. By using accelerated learning techniques and personal development tools we are able to build student confidence and ability in a fun and supportive environment.

Our courses are designed to help students reflect on their learning and inspire them to reach their targets.


The course comprises mental maths tricks, reflective practice, goal setting, Mind Mapping for shapes and their properties, exercises to reduce mathematical anxiety, multi-sensory maths facts and problem solving using the ‘journey technique’.

"Natalie was excellent – her enthusiasm and passion were really clear, and this rubbed off on the students. They were all really positive about the content and the course leader. Communication with Natalie before the event was really easy, she arrived early in the morning and was adaptable to our requests! 10/10!!!"
