At Hollymount School we strive to provide a curriculum which is both rich and thorough.
We aim to ensure children acquire and become fluent with the basic principles of mathematics and are able to apply this knowledge to problem solving.
Speaking and listening is a priority and the curriculum ensures opportunities for pupils to develop their reasoning and explanation skills.
