St Giles’ ranks among the top 200 schools in the country for multiplication

St Giles’ Catholic Primary School, in Cheadle, has received a letter of congratulations from the Minister for schools for its outstanding results with students learning and understanding their times tables.

The school averaged a score of 24.1 out of 25, placing it in the top 200 schools for its results.

The letter, from Rt Hon Damian Hinds, MP, states, “Knowing times tables is vital for school and day-to-day life. Recalling multiplication and division facts up to 12×12 is important for progression in Maths…… I would like both to congratulate your staff and pupils for their hard work and to thank you for your leadership in continuing to promote the important subject of mathematics.”

Mrs Gill Wretham, Executive Principal at St Giles’ said, “We are delighted to have received this letter as recognition of our outstanding results. At St Giles’, we always aim to make learning as engaging as possible and really try to bring all elements of the curriculum to life.

To be in the top 200 schools with our multiplication checks is a wonderful achievement. With approximately 16,780 primary schools in the country, this places us firmly in the top 2%.”
