Times Tables

As part of our ongoing improvements, we are supporting our students using every opportunity possible.

Using subliminal messages has long been used in all sorts of fields. The ability of the brain to pick something up without any conscious act has been the basis of many sales campaigns. This week we have introduced exactly this idea to the Academy. By placing the multiplication tables on the stairs students will, over time, have better recall and more secure knowledge of the multiplication tables, without having to sit and learn them formally. This is part of a wide ranging strategy used in the faculty to assist the boys in aquiring life skills including using Apps, online resources and trips to conferences such as The Big Bang.
