what our students say
"I chose to study Maths because I enjoyed problem- solving at GCSE and wanted to further challenge myself. I really enjoy the variety of the fields we study, from pure mathematical concepts to practical applications in stats and mechanics. Next year I'm planning to study medicine. Through studying maths, I have developed problem-solving and analytical skills which will be useful when interpreting medical research in the future. I would definitely recommend taking Maths because it's highly rewarding and facilitates many other subjects. "
Exam Board: Edexcel
We follow an EDEXCEL A Level which covers Pure Mathematics with Mechanics and Statistics and which provides a sound and broad base for further study and training in many areas.
A Level Mathematics covers:
- Pure Mathematics (2/3 of the course): algebra, geometry, sequences, calculus
- Mechanics (1/6 of the course): motion, forces, moments and vectors
- Statistics (1/6 of the course): probability, random variables, hypothesis tests
In the June of Year 13 the course will be assessed by 3 exams (Pure 1/Pure 2/Applications) of 2 hours each.
Who should consider Mathematics?
To succeed at Mathematics you need to be able to answer “yes” to the following questions:
- Do you like fractions?
- Do you enjoy algebra?
- Are you prepared to do lots of routine practice from the text books?
- Are you willing to do maths work every day?
If you are applying for A Level Maths, you will need to complete the bridging and diagnostic work on the school website. You should use these over the summer to make sure that you are fully prepared for beginning the course in September.
Mathematics is incredibly useful not just in its own right, but as a support to the majority of other A Level subjects, in particular the Sciences, Psychology and Geography. A qualification in Mathematics is regarded very highly by all universities whichever course is applied for.
