Overview
At AS and A2 level, all students follow a common course in Core Mathematics with additional modules in either Mechanics or Statistics, leading to accreditation by OCR (MEI). The Faculty also runs an increasingly popular Further Maths course intended to extend, engage and develop the most able mathematicians.
