King Edward VI School - Mathematics


Our Mathematics Department is always willing to give their time to support our students.
Mathematics is the largest department in the School but still maintains a real sense of community between the staff and the students. At GCSE we follow the Edexcel Higher Tier Specification and there is the opportunity to supplement this with the OCR Additional Mathematics examination. GCSE Statistics is also available as an option, allowing students the chance to see the use of data and linking to other subjects such as Geography, Economics, Psychology and Science.

At A Level we follow the AQA specification which consists of topics from Pure Mathematics, Mechanics and Statistics. Students who wish to follow Further Mathematics are able to choose this as an extra A Level alongside their other subjects. For those who wish to enhance their mathematical skills to support their study of other subjects we also offer a Core Mathematics course in Year 12.

All students take part in the Mathematical Challenges administered by the UKMT and for the more successful candidates there are the follow on rounds, the Olympiads and the Kangaroo, as well as representing the School in the Team Mathematical Challenges.
