Reasons to Study Further Maths

This full A Level covers broader and deeper topics than the single A level. This is for you if you love maths and want to do a degree which has a high mathematical content. More prestigious universities might have it as an entrance requirement.

Our Vision for Maths

Students at SJB study Maths to:

  • Develop their passion for problem-solving and nurture a love and enjoyment of the subject. From types of triangles to advanced trigonometry, Maths is fun and inclusive for all.
  • Equip them to be numerically literate for an ever-changing world where Maths underpins world systems through a universal language.
  • Learn important skills, such as critical and logical thinking, that are crucial and applicable to all areas of life. Whether our students go on to be a stage designer or an astronaut; the skills that students develop through studying Maths will equip them for wider society.

Career Paths

  • Business Studies
  • Computing and Engineering
  • Economics
  • Geography
  • Medicine
  • Mathematics (obviously!)
  • Psychology
  • Sciences

Some students find that studying a single A-level in Mathematics is not sufficient preparation for degrees with a significant mathematical content.

Numerous universities now stipulate that Further Maths is a preferred subject for many of their Maths/Economics/Engineering based degree courses.
