KS5 (Years 12-13)
Key Stage 5
Students can follow A Level courses in Mathematics or Mathematics and Further Mathematics. The students follow the OCR A Level specification for Maths (H240) and Further Maths (H245). These are both linear courses in which all content is assessed at the end of the course.
The students will be monitored throughout the course. They will complete a number of assessments and common home learning tasks which will be used to track their progress. The mathematics staff run support classes and drop-in sessions to provide additional help for the students.
We give the students the opportunity to participate in the UKMT Maths Challenge each year. Some students also represent the school in the UKMT Team Challenges.
