Mathematics and Numeracy are compulsory Areas of Learning at Key Stage 3. These give pupils a wider understanding of how the world around them works and prepares them for making decisions, solving problems, and processing everyday information.  In Mathematics our aim is to instil students with the confidence to use the language of Mathematics to communicate complex ideas clearly and logically.

Throughout their time in Clounagh Junior High School, all pupils have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding in the following areas:


  • Number

  • Algebra

  • Shape, Space and Measures

  • Handling Data


Our purpose is to provide pupils with the mathematical skills necessary for modern life. Through engagement with current issues that are within the sphere of experience of our young people, teachers can help pupils to relate Mathematics and Financial Capability to real life and to work.
