# Key Stage 5

## Mathematics

We follow the AQA courses for A Level Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Core Mathematics. In the Sixth Form we currently have 112 students studying A-level Mathematics, 16 students studying Further Mathematics and 20 studying Core Mathematics.

In 2018 85% of our students achieved an A*-C grade at A-Level Mathematics and 100% achieved an A*-B grade at A-Level Further Mathematics.
