We want to create resilient, enthusiastic and confident lifelong learners who believe they can succeed.

At St George we concentrate on teaching the students methods that will not only develop their ability to do mathematics but their understanding of it as well. While examination success is undoubtedly important, we believe the life skills of numeracy, problem solving, strategies, confidence and competence with numbers are the foundation of success.

For Years 7 and 8, we follow the Key Stage 3 national curriculum. Students are taught topics around the stands of number, algebra, shape and space, data handling and ratio and proportion. Students have a short assessment at the end of each half term based on what they have learnt and then they will have a longer assessment at the beginning and at the end of the year which will cover all areas.

Years 9, 10 and 11 follow the Edexcel GCSE specification. This is split into two tiers: higher and foundation. The GCSE will be graded 9-1 and will be assessed at the end of Year 11 with three exam papers: one non calculator and two calculator.

All students are set according to their ability and this is reviewed at various points in the year. Putting the students into sets enables all students to work at the pace most suited to them.
