What will you study?

A Level Mathematics is an interesting and challenging course which extends the methods you learned at GCSE and includes Statistics and Mechanics. A Level Mathematics is fun and rewarding. It broadens your mathematical skills and promotes deeper mathematical thinking. You will be introduced to interesting new areas of pure mathematics such as calculus and you will apply mathematics in a wider range of contexts.

Mathematics will be of great benefit to all students studying Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computing, Geography, Psychology, Economics and Business Studies. With employers valuing it more than most subjects as students develop excellent analytical and logical thinking skills. Through problem solving, students will build resilience and think more strategically and creatively.
