Overview:

In Maths, Year 7 students have 5 lessons each week.

Year 7 students will receive one 30-40 minute piece of Maths homework each week.
Homework can consist of online homework, written homework or research and presentation preparation.

Students are set in groups according to learning need within the first few days of starting at St George's.
All sets study the same topics but at varying depth and complexity.
