Mathematics: Mission statement
To develop an appreciation of the intrinsic delights and application of Mathematics in the real world.
Key Stage 5
Both Mathematics and Further Mathematics provide opportunities for learners to enjoy acquiring disciplined logical thinking skills which are, then, applied across a wide range of modelled situations in the Arts and Sciences. The courses prepare students to develop theory independently and provide a firm basis for future study at degree level and beyond.
The A level course consists of 6 units and follows the EDEXCEL syllabus. Three units are studied in Year 12, Core 1, Core 2 and an applications unit Statistics 1. These units are all assessed by external examination in the summer of year 12. Three more units are studied in Year 13, Core 3, Core 4 and the applications unit Mechanics 1. Again these units are all assessed by external examination in the summer of Year 13.
