Mathematics A Level *FEES PAYABLE* at Northampton High School
This course can be considered by any student wishing to continue their interest in Mathematics and is particularly advantageous for those taking A Level science subjects. It offers the stimulation of investigating new ideas, the challenge of tackling problems and the satisfaction of solving them, which those girls who enjoy Mathematics will have already experienced to a certain degree.
It is recommended for girls wishing to pursue a career in scientific or technical work, engineering, business studies, banking, accountancy and computing. It is also accepted by most teaching hospitals as a suitable qualification for entry to medicine or dentistry degree courses.
