Further Mathematics


The benefit of learning Futher Maths A-level is because many university maths departments encourage students to take Further Mathematics. It introduces a wider range of pure and applied content, such as matrices and complex numbers. Students who have studied Further Mathematics often find the transition to university far more straightforward. At Folkestone School for Girls we teach Further Pure and Further Mechanics - which supports most courses at University level.
