Mathematics and Further Mathematics are versatile qualifications, well-respected by employers and are both facilitating subjects for entry to Higher Education.
The Mathematics Department is supportive and aims to help all pupils achieve their goals.
In the 3rd Form the pupils embark on the IGCSE course which covers topics in Number, Algebra, Graphs and Sequences, Shape and Space, and Sets and Data Handling.
The department offers Additional Mathematics and AS Further Mathematics as extra-curricular activities, which allows pupils to broaden their Mathematical studies. The Department also encourages pupils to participate in the UKMT Mathematics Challenges both individually and as part of a team. When lectures and enrichment activities, for example cryptography competitions, are available, then we try to be involved.
Past pupils have studied Computer Science, Engineering, Economics, Sciences, Accountancy and Mathematics at many Russell Group universities.
Pupils study for the IGCSE in Mathematics following the Edexcel Board. The course covers topics in Number, Algebra, Graphs and Sequences, Shape and Space, and Sets and Data Handling.
Pupils can study for the Edexcel AS and A2 levels in both Mathematics and Further Mathematics. These include Pure Mathematics, Statistics, Mechanics and Decision Mathematics. Calculus, Co-ordinate Geometry, Algebra and Trigonometry are the main focus in Pure Mathematics.
