Maths / Numeracy

We’ll help your child build skills and confidence in Maths, whether they’re at primary, intermediate or early high school level.

Primary and Intermediate

Primary and intermediate maths involves key numeracy skills that we use in everyday life. This makes it vital for all students.

  • Basic facts, including times tables
  • Strategies for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing

  • Wider concepts such as geometry and statistics.


High school maths includes a range of important skills that students might use in future occupations. Marley Perkins can help your child build a strong foundation for NCEA and beyond with our Year 9 and 10 programmes.

We cover all the key areas, such as:

  • Algebra
