Mathematics and Further Mathematics
The Mathematics Department is housed in three dedicated rooms which are each equipped with interactive smart boards and located in the Mathematics and Science building. We also have our own room in the Sixth Form Teaching area.
Mathematics is a highly popular subject in the Sixth Form; typically around half of Year 11 students elect to study Mathematics beyond the GCSE. Pupils follow the Edexcel course with modules in pure mathematics and either statistics or mechanics.
Lesson time is supported by homework, online support and extension materials, lectures and visits and the opportunity to enter the UK Senior Mathematics Challenge.
Exceptional mathematicians might like to consider Further Mathematics, a full second A Level of longer, more demanding questions. The Further Mathematics course includes additional pure topics, further mechanics and decision mathematics. It is not for the faint-hearted, but offers the real enthusiast the chance to explore some advanced and diverting material.
