Future opportunities

A level Mathematics is highly respected by both employers and further education establishments. From Accountancy to Zoology, the ability to use mathematics is a valued skill. Mathematics is fundamental in the understanding of the complex society we live in and most important of all is the most powerful means of communication throughout the world. It is hoped that those studying Maths do not do so purely for future employment prospects. Like most worthwhile quests in life, the study of Mathematics brings its own rewards.
