Last year 16 of our Mathematicians took an additional Further Maths Level 2 (iGCSE), achieving grades including 8 A and A* grades. Being an extension to GCSE Maths, this course has a high algebra and proof content – a positive challenge for some pupils. We are delighted that, of the pupils going on to study at Bolton Sixth Form, 13 of these pupils have chosen to study AS level Mathematics.
Returning former pupils have told us how valuable their Further Maths studies have been in preparing for their A-level course, putting them “ahead of the game” once they start at Sixth Form. Well done and good luck to our Mathematicians!
