Level 3

Mathematics A-level


This course extends the mathematical skills you have acquired at GCSE. You will learn to apply your skills to solve more complex problems and apply mathematics to real-life situations. We will teach you how to communicate your mathematics clearly using correct notation and prepare you for degree level study in a mathematical subject. The new A Level Mathematics specification includes algebra, calculus, trigonometry, statistics and mechanics. This course is designed to ensure a smooth transition from higher tier GCSE Mathematics. You will be introduced to topics in an accessible, relevant and enjoyable way. You will be encouraged to use a graphical or Casio Classwiz calculator and all maths classrooms have interactive whiteboards. You will often work in small groups but also sometimes work independently. In addition to lessons there will also be extra support sessions for you to attend and maths teachers are available outside of lesson time for help with homework.


You need a minimum of five GCSEs at 9-4, including grade 6 in Maths and grade 4 in English Language. You will need an interest and aptitude for Mathematics. You will need to build on the knowledge learnt from higher tier Mathematics GCSE. You need to particularly enjoy the algebra you have studied at GCSE.
