Maths is incredibly important in our lives. Without realising it, we use mathematical concepts, as well as the skills we learn from doing maths problems every day, such as in our shopping, cooking and budgeting.

GCSE Maths

All students will study Mathematics. Studying Mathematics teaches students a range of key skills which will be valuable as they progress through every stage of their life. These skills include learning to:
• break down problems into small steps in order to solve them using mathematical skills, logic and reason;
• relate these skills to real-life situations;
• develop the ability to use mathematical language and notation to justify answers.

A Level Maths

Mathematics is the right choice for students who enjoy thinking logically and solving problems. At GCSE, students discuss new ideas and apply them to questions. The same is true for A Level with a greater emphasis on writing convincing working and applying the skills in a more independent way. Mathematics plays an important role in many careers including computing, business management, economics, medicine, geography, psychology and social sciences. Mathematics can be usefully combined with any subjects.

A Level Further Maths

For students who find GCSE Maths easy and  enjoy algebra and trigonometry, they may feel that they want something more challenging than A Level Maths. In that case, Further Maths is a great option! Typically the students who choose Further Maths are hoping to study Maths, Finance, Economics, Engineering, Physics, Medicine, Architecture or other subjects which demand excellent maths skills at university.
