The Mathematics department offers Maths at A level and Further Maths at AS and A level. Numbers have increased hugely in recent years; with six Further Maths classes planned for the new intake, we are one of the biggest providers of Further Maths in the country.
Students who wish are entered for the United Kingdom Senior Maths Challenge, and those sufficiently successful in that can be entered for the British Mathematical Olympiad.
All students who arrive at the college without at least a Grade 4 in GCSE maths (or the equivalent) are required to study higher level GCSE Maths.
