Maths A Level Course Content

Maths at Post 16, we follow the Edexcel A Level course throughout the two years.  This is a demanding A Level, and it relies on students having the will and independence to work on practice questions and on revision without always having to be directed.  There are a small minority of students who may be directed towards the AS qualification at the end of the first year if they are struggling to cope.
