KS5

A level Maths and Further maths is offered at KS5.

A-level Maths provides students with a thorough grounding in the mathematical tools and
techniques often needed in the workplace.
A level Further Maths is designed to broaden and deepen the mathematical knowledge and skills
developed when studying A level Maths.
Most students will complete three modules in one year, which will create an AS-level qualification in
their own right and will complete the A-level course the following year with three more modules.
The logic and reasoning skills developed by studying A-level Maths make sure the qualification is
widely respected even in non-mathematical areas.

Year 12 - Core maths - C1 & C2, and an option - S1 or M1
Year 13 - Core maths - C3 & C4 and an option - S2 or M2
