Booster Classes for Primary School Children
“Don’t worry about your problems with Mathematics, I assure you mine are far greater”.
Maths is a creative and highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
The Great Circle’s Grade Booster classes are suitable for children in primary school working between National Curriculum Levels 3 & 6. Your child’s school will be able to provide this information if you are unsure.
We teach the core elements of the Mathematics National Curriculum from first principles. It is vital that every child understands the fundamental principles of Number, Algebra, Geometry & Statistics; as this will ultimately determine which GCSE and A-Level courses they are able to undertake in the future. For some children, learning the basic principles can literally mean the difference between them successfully being able to use and apply maths in the real world or risk developing a lifetime phobia of the subject.
We recognise the importance of fundamental maths skills and the vital role they play in our lives. Unlike most tuition schools, we take a fresh approach to teach these key skills. All courses designed by The Great Circle will complement the curriculum at your child’s school as well as provide them with the vital tools they will need in the real world when it comes to using and applying maths.
Content is modular and where possible, we try to keep each class independent of the next. This way children don’t get bored and can attend at anytime throughout the school year. Where there is subject overlap, we will advise you of this prior to you booking your child’s place.

Class Sizes & Staff
Very small class sizes (8 children maximum) coupled with patient, dedicated and enthusiastic teachers, ensure your child gets the most out of their time spent with us. All of our staff are dynamic subject specialists, with a good degree in a relevant subject (usually Mathematics) and a teaching qualification backed up with years of teaching experience.
At The Great Circle, we’re extremely passionate about all things maths and ensuring that children get off to a flying start with numbers. We believe Maths is all about confidence and understanding its relevance and application in the real world. Using it, applying it, talking about it, presenting ideas publicly; all help to build confidence.
Where and when do classes run?
We are located close to the centre of Halifax and our courses run during term-time only commencing September 2017. For specific dates and times, see below.
How often does my child need to attend?
We recommend that your child attends both classes each week.
Assessments are conducted at the end of each half-term, simply to measure your child’s progress throughout the course and provide you with detailed feedback.
Your child must be working between National Curriculum Levels 3a & 6c.
Regular and punctual attendance is expected in order for your child to achieve, progress and realise their full potential.
On successful completion of this course your child will be able to apply their skills with confidence to higher level studies. It will most certainly improve their level and enhance their chances of taking the higher tier GCSE course in the future.
Health, Safety & Well-Being
The Great Circle is committed to ensuring your child has a happy, successful and productive time with us - ensuring their health, safety and well-being is at the heart of everything we do. We proactively encourage the disclosure of any disabilities or issues which may impact on their learning experience - this can be at enrolment, or at any other stage during your studies. Any information you disclose will be held in strict confidence and will be used to assess your child's in-class support needs and inform a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan to ensure your safe evacuation from the building in the event of an emergency. If you would like further information, please contact us.
The Great Circle is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expects all staff to share this commitment.
