Maths

What will I study?

Do you have a flair for algebra? Do graphs get your pulse racing? If so you we can help you to become a proper mathematician. If you take maths at A-level, you will build on many GCSE topics such as surds, circle geometry and sequences, as well as meeting many new topics. You will also study applied maths content in statistics and mechanics. Details about the course content are on Gmaths28.wordpress on the information webpage.

What do students do afterwards?

In recent years, our A-level maths students have gone on to study a wide variety of subjects including maths, science and engineering. We’ve also had students entering degrees in law and business or apprenticeships. Maths A-level is really well regarded by universities and employers. See the display posters in the maths department for an idea of the variety of student destinations

How will I be assessed?

100% by three written exam papers at the end of the course.

What can I do to prepare?

Talk to other students who are already doing the course and ask them what they have done or wish they had done. We will give you a full bridging programme when you finish your GCSEs and we can help you with any bits you are stuck on.
