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 2017 55% of students gained grades A*-B and 32% A*-A.

The standard A level course consists of three examinations taken at the end of Year 13. Two of these exams are in Pure Mathematics and the other is in Statistics and Mechanics.

We also offer Further Mathematics, where there is some flexibility regarding which examinations to take.

We support students who are taking entrance examinations for university, such as STEP and AEA.

We do ask that students have attained a Grade 7 in GCSE mathematics as a pre-requisite.
