Mathematics & Double Mathematics
The Mathematics Department aims to:
- enable all pupils to learn to appreciate the beauty and usefulness of mathematics;
- teach in a stimulating manner and convey our enthusiasm for mathematics;
- enable all pupils to achieve a grade reflecting their true ability in all public examinations in mathematics;
- teach pupils to think for themselves.
Pupils are also encouraged to take part in both the UK Intermediate and Senior Mathematics Challenges, with considerable success.
All pupils take Edexcel IGCSE Higher Level Mathematics at the end of Fifth Form (Year 11) and the top two divisions also take AQA Additional Further Mathematics. Many of our pupils continue to study the subject successfully in the Sixth Form and beyond. Universities and employers value Mathematics, particularly in the fields of Law, Computing, Science, Engineering and Economics.
