7 in GCSE mathematics
Work will be assessed through terminal examinations at the end of year 13
Algebraic skills are enhanced by the use of complex numbers. Three-dimensional geometry is studied using vectors, matrices and determinants. Mathematical models of kinematics and statics problems are set up in order to solve problems.
BEYOND SIXTH FORM
Qualification in further mathematics will be beneficial for those seeking a university place. Past students have gone on to study mathematics, physics, medicine, electronic engineering, biochemistry and astronomy. Students who wish to study mathematics or related subjects post A level are often offered lower grade offers if they study further mathematics.
