Further Maths is for you if you have also chosen to take A Level Mathematics, you
enjoy the subject and want to take it further as you are very good at mathematics
and enjoy solving difficult problems. A Level Maths and Further Maths can lead you
into any field at degree or in employment, for example, Actuarial, Accountancy,
Business and Finance, Surveying, Engineering, Information Technology, Environmental,
Education and Scientific.
We are a member of the Further Maths Support Programme which organises and encourages
collaborative working between other local centres offering this A Level. Further
Maths will occupy slightly fewer timetabled lessons than other subjects as you will
be taking Maths alongside.
We aim to respond to your question within two working days (term time only).
