Mathematics

For those wishing to study Mathematics beyond KS4, the new A-level Maths and Further Maths courses focus on three key areas; algebraic manipulation and proof, problem solving and modelling. By focusing on these three areas we will make students better mathematicians and, with that, better thinkers.

The course is split into three interconnected areas:

Pure mathematics (the study of number, algebra, geometry and calculus)

Mechanics (the study and modelling of the physical world)

Statistics ( the study and analysis of data sets)
