Assessment

Mathematical skills are highly valued and sought after by the most prestigious businesses and education establishments because there is a national shortage of well-developed mathematicians.  Mathematics disciplines the mind, develops logical and critical reasoning, and develops analytical and problem solving skills.  6th form mathematics fosters an interest in the subject, as well as providing a study of the various applications of mathematics to real world problems.  Students acquire skills which will be helpful in other A-levels and in any future career.  Mathematics is a required A level for many courses at degree level including mathematics, physics, engineering, medicine, business & economics.
