Students who demonstrate a flair for mathematics and have a genuine interest in developing their mathematics to an even higher standard are able to study the Further mathematics course. This is an additional A-Level to the Mathematics, resulting in students achieving two qualifications in Mathematics. The course is studied alongside the A-Level Mathematics course and the content has been carefully ordered to support this; ensuring students have the pre-requisite knowledge before learning a new topic.
How will students be assessed for A-Level Further Mathematics?
Examination board: Edexcel
Paper 1 – Core Pure Mathematics 1 (90 mins)
Paper 2 – Core Pure Mathematics 2 (90 mins)

All students are encouraged to use graphical calculators in order to integrate technology in their learning to support their learning allowing them to obtain a visual perspective of the graphical elements of the course. Students will also be encouraged to take advantage of the KS5 Revision Hub which includes revision material, past papers, useful revision links and much more to enhance their independent revision.
