A-Level Mathematics at Winstanley College

Course description

Why should I study Mathematics at Winstanley?

The main reason to study Mathematics at A-level is because you really enjoy Maths!  A Level Mathematics is a fantastic subject which combines ‘Pure Mathematics’ such as algebra, geometry and functions, with Applied Mathematics modules. It shows potential employers that you have a highly logical mind that can present organised arguments to solve numerical problems — a skill which is widely sought after. We can guarantee that every student will receive first class tuition in Mathematics at Winstanley College; all the teachers in the department are subject specialists and are very passionate about Mathematics. The department has several experienced examiners and a wealth of knowledge in how best to prepare students for the examinations. The department prides itself upon the fact that it has developed its own teaching materials for all modules on the courses. These consist of booklets and self-marking solutions for all past papers and assignments.  These factors all contribute to our excellent results.  All this means that Winstanley College, in our opinion, is the only place to study Mathematics.

How will I be supported in my Mathematical studies?

Individual support for students is provided by all staff and one-to-one support through our Mentoring Scheme is also available. Mathematics enrichment activities are thriving and numerous competitions take place both internally throughout the year and externally through challenges offered by the UK Maths Trust and Liverpool University.

Beyond A-level

With an A Level in Mathematics you can do practically anything you wish! Our students have gone on to study subjects such as Mathematics, Physics, Medicine, Aeronautical Engineering, Finance, Actuarial science, Business, Computing, Law and Psychology at University, however there are many other diverse areas where mathematical skills are recognised as invaluable and essential.

How is the Course structured?

A-level maths is a two year linear course in which students sit all examinations at the end of year 13. Students sit three 2 hour compulsory examination papers.  One paper is made up of pure maths, one is made up of pure and mechanics and the third paper is made up of pure and statistics.
