The 99 club has been developed to help raise standards in Mathematics by encouraging pupils to improve their mental maths and therefore increase the speed and confidence they tackle mental maths problems in their Mathematics lessons, across the curriculum and in day to day life. All children start on the 11 club and work their way up.

99 club is not designed for Foundation Stage, however, if teachers feel children are ready for it then they are given the opportunity.
Pupils are able to practice at home using practice sheets available on the website. The order of the questions changes so it is not possible for children to simply learn the answers in a particular order.
