A-Level Maths is one of the most challenging and highly regarded A-Level subjects, both as a subject in its own right and as the basic language of many scientific subjects. If you like puzzles, problem-solving and learning to think logically, A-Level Maths is for you …



Right at the heart of A-level Maths is problem solving. The ability to construct an argument and present it in a logical and cohesive way. We look at what Pure Mathematics actually is and how it can be related to complex situations such as predicting outcomes for population growth or material decay. We’ll be uncovering surprising relationships that let us solve new problems, putting to work the algebra you studied at GCSE and taking it beyond in just the first few weeks of the course! We’ll also be applying Maths directly to situations from the real world: this might be using Statistics to test the claim “does mind reading exist?” Or examining the motion of an object using Mechanics: Why do we fall forwards when the tram comes to a stop?


As part of our course we find time for you to work in-depth on problem solving together – the key skill that employers value most about A-level Maths. If this is your thing you can do even more of it outside of lessons and can even compete against other mathematicians from all over the country in problem solving challenges.


All examinations are taken at the end of your second year.


A-level Maths supports a wide range of career paths and is often required by universities and employers for Engineering, Physics, Computer Science and Finance. People who have studied Maths are strong candidates for a very wide range of careers including Business, Finance, Science, Technology and Engineering.


You need a Grade 6 or above GCSE Maths and need at least 5 GCSEs grade 4 or above including English.




This subject will take two years to complete. Please note that this is not yet a linear subject, therefore you will be taking exams at the end of your first year that will count towards you final A-level qualification.
