Mathematics A level at Sacred Heart of Mary Girls' School

Course description

Advanced level Mathematics is highly recognised by employers and those in further education. The course is very demanding and students must be prepared for teacher-led lessons as well as a lot of independent study outside of lessons. Full attendance to lessons is expected, where possible. It is also necessary for students who experience difficulty with the work to seek extra help before the next lesson.
