Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think. – Albert Einstein
The Mathematics Department at Orley Farm School provides its pupils with a solid grounding in the subject. We not only successfully prepare pupils for the various entrance examinations of senior schools, but also encourage them to appreciate the inherent beauty of the subject as well as see it in the context of its many real world applications.
The boys and girls are taken beyond the confines of the curriculum through involvement in various competitions such as the Primary Mathematics Challenge and Junior Mathematics Challenge, attendance at talks given by senior school teachers and participation in our annual Mathematics Day. We want them to enjoy their study of mathematics and find it fun and rewarding as well as challenging!
