Further Maths
A Level

Course Overview

Further Maths is a course studied in addition to the standard Maths A Level course. This course will appeal to students who have a real enthusiasm for maths, enjoy problem solving and are keen to explore the subject from the theoretical aspects to the more abstract.



The Further Maths programme involves studying both pure and applied modules. The topics covered are more sophisticated and conceptually advanced compared to the single A Level Maths programme.

In A Level Further Maths, you will study Matrices, Series and Complex Numbers and learn how to solve differential equations.


5 GCSE grades 9 to 4, including at least a Grade 8 in Maths.

In Further Maths, topics you will study include:

  • Complex numbers.
  • Matrices.
  • Roots of polynomials.
  • Hyperbolic functions.
  • Methods in differential equations.

If you are considering a University course that will have a Maths, Physics or Engineering core, then this course will stand you in good stead for your future. Many universities prefer students to have at least AS Level Further Maths in order to study a Maths Degree.
