Why study Mathematics?
Do you enjoy solving puzzles? If so, Mathematics is the subject for you. At its core, the subject is about patterns and structure. The A-Level Maths aims to further develop your logical-thinking and problem-solving skills, extending your understanding of mathematics. Within the course you will have opportunities to explore the relationship between number sets, uncover the beauties of calculus and its applications, appreciate the links between geometrical and algebraic dependencies as well as play with a centre of gravity.
What can I do with A-Level Maths after Sixth Form?
Mathematics sets strong foundations for a variety of related degrees. The subject has clear links with courses such as Chemistry, Physics, Economics or even Biology and Psychology. Students with qualifications in Advanced Level Mathematics find the skills and knowledge gained from the course useful when pursuing careers in areas such as medicine, engineering, veterinary science, finance, accounting, computing, science, law and marketing. National statistics show that students who took Advanced Level Mathematics ended up earning, on average, 10 per cent more than those of similar ability and background who did not.
Our focus will always be not only to support you to achieve the best you can in the qualification itself, but also to enrich your learning in the context of mathematical ideas. Mathematics offers you an opportunity to be involved in national competitions, such as the Senior Maths Challenge both individually and in teams. In addition, links with the Royal Institution and Cambridge University will allow you to attend inspiring lectures and events showing mathematics at its best. You will have the opportunity to enjoy exploring mathematics by attending nationally run talks and shows as well as participating in our Sixth Form Mathematics trips.
