Numeracy @Phoenix
Welcome to the Phoenix Numeracy webpage.
Everyday, without realising it, we are using Maths.  We believe that every student can develop the Numeracy skills they need to succeed at school and in the real world.  Improving students' confidence is the first step in giving them a head start!


Be positive - Maths is used in everyday life.

You have the ability to develop those Numeracy skills needed, from spending money to travelling to and from school.

Try your absolute best and you can improve your confidence and skills in Numeracy.

For further support in helping your child develop their Numeracy skills, please visit:

Pi Memory Challenge

As part of Pi Day (March 14th), students took part in a Pi Memory Challenge.

Pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter; no matter how large or small the circle is.

Year 7: Jashan and Mya

Year 9: George and Hamid

Year 10: Ammar, Harmanjit and Raonok

Also, huge congratulations to the following students, who were then able to memorise the first 100 decimal digits of Pi, in order, and were each rewarded with an Amazon gift voucher:

Year 7: Prabhmeet and Manroop

Year 10: Deborah and Avleen

Well done to all students who took part in the challenge!
