What will be studied?
Our Year 7 and Year 8 Schemes of Learning focus on building students’ key skills in specific areas and applying these to solve a range of related problems. The level of challenge is high and learning is modelled using a concrete/pictorial/abstract approach to help students develop understanding. Students are organised into broad bands based on prior attainment and teacher assessment. The Year 9 scheme of learning builds on the Year 7-8 content and students will consolidate and extend this understanding as well as encountering some new concepts and topics.

St Albans Girls' School regularly enters teams into the UKMT Maths Challenges which allow students to test their problem-solving skills in a national competition. Our students regularly receive Gold awards and in recent years we have had students qualify for Olympiads as a result of exceptional performance in these challenges.
