KS5

 A level mathematics is a very popular subject, with about 80 students starting the course every year. The course is relevant to many career choices.  Sheldon School has an excellent reputation for A level success: in 2016 52% of students gained grades A*-B and 35% A*-A.

The standard A level course consists of four pure maths modules (C1-4), one mechanics module (M1) and one statistics module (S1). We do ask that students have attained a Grade A in GCSE mathematics as a pre-requisite.

We also offer A level Further Mathematics and provide tuition for AEA and STEP examinations.

The further mathematics course involves three more pure maths modules (FP1-3) and three more applied modules.

Year 12 students will start the new A Level course in September 2017. The material is studied over two years and grades are awarded following the exams at the end of year 13. Students will still study core material of pure mathematics and also practical elements of mechanics and statistics.
