    We follow the Edexcel AS and A2 Mathematics and Further Mathematics syllabus at A-level. There are 6 modules per A-Level and no coursework. Single mathematicians usually take 3 modules in the Year 12 and 3 in Year 13. Students are placed in ability sets at the start of Year 12 and continue into Year 13. Students are entered for exams in May/June of each year. .All teachers are happy to help any student who asks for help outside lesson time.

    Further mathematicians follow a varied and interesting diet of Pure, Statistics, Mechanics and Decision modules which allows them the flexibility to choose any degree course they wish to study. They may either choose the more statistics or the more mechanics based route in the Year 13. They can count A level and Further Mathematics as two of their A-level choices. We are very proud to send at students on to mathematics degrees each year.
