## Future opportunities

Employers and universities are always impressed by a student who has shown they can take their study of mathematics to such a high level by studying Further Maths; the ability to handle such complicated concepts and logical processes is challenging but also satisfying. Our students find they are at an advantage if they go on to study Maths-related courses at university, with five of our recent leavers taking places to study Maths and others following courses in Computer Science, Engineering and Physics at some very prestigious institutions.
