Welcome to the Mathematics Department at St. Alban’s RC High School. We are a forward-looking department who endeavours to develop, maintain and stimulate pupils’ curiosity, interest and enjoyment in Mathematics. We have high expectations of all our pupils and offer differentiated courses to suit pupils of various abilities, enabling them to reach their full potential.
We recognise the importance of providing pupils with the necessary mathematical skills needed in other subjects in the school curriculum and in everyday life. Mathematics is compulsory up to GCSE level where pupils follow the WJEC specification. Exam success at A Level has led the subject to be hugely popular beyond GCSE where pupils follow the OCR specification.
Many pupils then go onto study Mathematics or a related degree at university. We encourage pupil involvement in Mathematical activities beyond the classroom and have enjoyed success in local and national Mathematics competitions. St. Alban’s was voted the overall Welsh winners of the ‘Think Maths’ project and pupils have successfully participated in numerous Mathematics challenges and team competitions.
