Our AimsThe mathematics department at Wilson’s is thriving and exceptionally successful. All students are fully engaged and stretched by high quality enrichment material which goes well beyond exam board specifications. The department is committed to challenging its students and providing a varied and engaging mathematical experience for them.
The programme of study for students consists of a two-year key stage three followed by our GCSEplus course. All students in Years 9 to 11 take part in an extended programme of study incorporating A level material and the UK Maths Challenges. The success and enthusiasm of the students leads to a high percentage continuing to A level. We currently have over 250 students studying maths in the sixth form, many of whom are also studying AS/A level further maths. In addition, a significant number of students, some of exceptional calibre, go on to study mathematics or a related subjects at university and we offer a special programme of support including preparation for entrance exams (such as STEP) and interviews. Students are extremely successful as demonstrated by the examination results achieved year on year. Our results rank among the best of any school in the country.
