A* performance - Further Maths

The Mathematics Faculty offered Year 11 students the opportunity to study an additional GCSE in Further Maths. The dedicated students and teachers gave up their time to attend lessons after school throughout Year 11.
We were delighted that of the 25 students who chose to take up this extra-curricular challenge, 88% achieved A*/A grades. Congratulations to them all!
The course is designed to place an emphasis on higher order technical proficiency, rigorous argument and problem-solving skills and gives high achieving students an introduction to AS level topics that will help them to develop skills in: Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Matrices, Trigonometry, Functions and Graphs.A special mention has to go to Joe Lovell-McNamee and Simon Sharp who were both awarded distinction.
This qualification is suitable for gifted mathematicians who are likely to progress to A-level study in Mathematics and possibly Further Mathematics.
