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 2013 79% of students gained grades A*-B, with a total of 12 A* and 12 A grades achieved from the cohort.
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.
