St Paul's School
for Girls


The teaching of Mathematics at St Paul’s School for Girls has the following aims to encourage students, reflecting their Key Stage, to

  • develop their understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment;
  • develop abilities to reason logically and recognise incorrect reasoning, to generalise and to construct mathematical proofs;
  • extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques and use them in unstructured problems;
  • develop an understanding of coherence and progression in mathematics and of how different areas of mathematics can be connected;
  • recognise how a situation may be represented mathematically and understand the relationship between ‘real world’ problems and standard and other mathematical models and how these can be refined and improved;
  • acquire the skills needed to use technology such as calculators and computers effectively, recognise when such use may be inappropriate and be aware of limitations;
  • develop an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to other fields of study, to the world of work and to society in general;
  • take increasing responsibility for their own learning and the evaluation of their own mathematical development.
