A level Mathematics is an important subject with links to many other subjects like Sciences, Computer Science and Psychology. It builds on from GCSE level maths and develops skills explored during year 10 and 11. Our A Level course is designed so that students learn a variety of topics throughout the two years, which are built upon in year 13. It prepares students for further study and employment in a wide range of disciplines involving the use of mathematics. Through our delivery of the A level maths curriculum we promote resilience and independent learning.
A level Mathematics is a 2 year course which is assessed at the end of Year 13 through 3 examinations.
Two examinations assess the Core content which introduces calculus and its applications and it emphasises how mathematical ideas are interconnected and how mathematics can be applied to model situations mathematically using algebra and other representations. The final examination assesses the applied content which covers both statistics and mechanics and thinking about higher level maths in real-life situations.
