Mathematics at St Aidan's and St John Fisher's Associated Sixth Form

Course description

Mathematics qualifications are eagerly sought by students, and support their entry to a very wide range of careers and university courses. If students decide to take Mathematics further than GCSE it is important that they enjoy the subject and are prepared for the challenges that it provides.

Any student considering taking Mathematics in the Sixth Form should consult their Year 11 Maths teacher about their suitability for the course. Students taking Further Mathematics have enjoyed the course a great deal and gone forward with much enhanced career prospects. A high proportion has gained entry to leading universities.

Those students who are intending to take AS Physics should note that they will not take a Mechanics module in Mathematics until Year 13.

The Core modules cover extended use of:

* Algebraic techniques
* Trigonometry
* Numerical methods
* Calculus

Entry requirements

We prefer that students have covered as much of the Higher Tier syllabus as possible and obtained Grade A or above.

Students starting advanced courses who expect in Year 11 to obtain a grade B or even a low grade A in GCSE Maths must be prepared to undertake a significant amount of preparatory work during the summer of Year 11 prior to starting their course in Year 12. Preparatory work will be posted out to students in July of Year 11 and collected by staff at the start of Year 12.

5 GCSEs A*-C Grade
