About NumSkills

NumSkills is an exciting programme helping children improve their mental maths and calculation skills while having fun with numbers and playing games, using everyday items such as dice, cards and clocks.

NumSkills Money is designed specifically to improve financial literacy; tackling everything from basic coin recognition to how to work out best value supermarket offers.

Activities are flexible and our tutors adapt them to meet the needs of children from Year 2 to Year 6.

NumSkills sessions are delivered in schools across Oxfordshire in small groups of children by our specially trained tutors. 

After taking part in NumSkills, children are more confident, able to use the language of maths, and show far more willingness to engage in classroom maths activities. They also talk about teaching the games to their parents and siblings at home.

NumSkills is one of the programmes we offer as part of the National Tutoring Programme. Find out more.

The NumSkills and NumSkills Money activities are also available to buy and we offer training to school staff in how best to use the resources. To find out more, drop us a line on
