What is Maths?

A Level Maths is a fantastic subject, which offers you the opportunity to develop your logic, reasoning and problem solving skills through the study of both Pure Maths, such as algebra, geometry and functions with Applied Maths modules. It shows potential employers that you have a highly logical mind that can present organised arguments to solve numerical problems – a skill which is widely sought after.

What Will You Study?

Maths A Level builds on many of the topics you will have studied at GCSE with a particular emphasis on algebraic techniques. Within Pure Maths you will cover functions, trigonometry, calculus, exponentials, logarithms and sequences – incorporating modelling and problem solving in all areas studied. The applied element of the course provides an opportunity to study Mechanics and Statistics, where we apply mathematical techniques to real world problems.

What Next?

Maths A Level is a sought after qualification that is well regarded by all universities and employers. The skills gained are easily transferred to many higher education courses as well as future careers. Many students go on to university to study courses such as Medicine, Engineering, Computing, Economics and Physics. Students have also been successful in gaining apprenticeships with prestigious employers such as BAE Systems and KPMG.
