Course introduction

If you have a talent for mathematics and would like to get more out of the subject, then Further Maths is your opportunity to excel.

As a student you will complete two different A Levels in mathematics over two years. In the first year you will complete A Level Maths in one of our fast-track groups. Then in the second year you will complete A Level Further Maths

As a result, you will have scaled the heights of Mathematics at further education level and will be well prepared to pursue a maths related subject at a top university.

Why choose Brock for Further Mathematics A level?

At Brock we have a team of highly experienced and dedicated teachers who specialise in teaching A Level Maths and Further Maths.

You will learn in dedicated Further Maths groups in both the first and second years, studying alongside students with similar abilities. The benefit of this is that you can challenge yourself to progress faster.

Furthermore, your lessons will take place in high quality maths teaching rooms located within our new state-of-the-art STEM building.

Teaching & learning

In addition to traditional classroom learning, we give you extra opportunities for support and enrichment.

Indeed, every year Brock students take part in the regional Senior Team Maths Challenge competition, pitting themselves against teams from other local schools and colleges.

We also facilitate trips further afield, including visits to central London and elsewhere for stimulating talks by leading researchers.

What can I do with this qualification?

Many of our most successful students follow this course. This is largely because an A Level in Further Mathematics is a highly regarded qualification that can support you in applying to top universities.

Importantly, it provides a springboard to studying Maths and other highly mathematical subjects like Physics and Chemistry at degree level. It will also help you with many other degree subjects such as those related to Engineering and Computer Science.
