We offer both Mathematics and Further Mathematics A levels with an entry requirement of a 7 for Mathematics an 8 for Further Mathematics .
The Mathematics course is stimulating, challenging and satisfying as you develop your understanding of Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics A level Syllabus. All our Mathematics teachers are specialists with Mathematics degrees and have special interests in their teaching areas; Mr Barbor, having worked in Engineering, teaches Mechanics and Mr Fenlon, having worked in Finance, teaches Statistics.
Our passion and insight into these areas enhances our teaching and can help the pupils understand the mathematics they are learning in a wider context.
Mathematics is recognised as a rigorous A level – this means that it is held in very high regard by universities but it is also slightly more challenging than some other A level subjects. At HCS we follow the EDEXCEL modular A level which comprises six modules; the first three of which are followed in the Lower Sixth Year. A level Mathematics classes all ensure individual attention and extra tuition is always available.
“At HCS, you will receive teaching from experts in each of the mathematical fields, covering a wide range of topics including pure mathematics, statistics, mechanics and more. Classes are small, ensuring near one to one attention.”
What do I need to start the course? You will have achieved at least a Grade B at Higher Level GCSE Mathematics.
