Further Mathematics

For those students with a particular passion for Mathematics, we offer a combined Mathematics and Further Mathematics course. Further Mathematics is increasingly in demand from universities for all Engineering courses, Chemistry and Physics. It is also welcomed for Veterinary Science and Medicine.

For more information on the relevance and potential of Further Mathematics, please explore the Further Mathematics Network website at

Further Mathematics allows students to study Mechanics as well as the topics of Matrices and Complex Numbers which are so important to all Maths-rich degrees.

Aims of the Course

The course aims to quickly progress students through the early A Level Mathematics modules which cover a lot of topics that are included in Additional Maths, studied by Set 1 in Year 11 and offered as a lunchtime club to Set 2 pupils. This allows extra time to explore the more challenging content of the later modules and to extend their studies to include work on STEP (Cambridge University Entrance exams) and AEA Mathematics (Advanced Extension Award).
