THE MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT at Wilson’s is thriving and exceptionally successful. All pupils are fully engaged and stretched by high quality enrichment material which goes well beyond exam board specifications. The department is committed to challenging its pupils and providing a varied and engaging mathematical experience for them.

The programme of study for pupils 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 Level 2 Further Maths content, A level topics and structured investigations that further develop problem solving skills. The success and enthusiasm of the pupils leads to a high percentage continuing to A level. We currently have over 300 pupils studying maths in the sixth form, many of whom are also studying AS/A level further maths.

In addition, a significant number of pupils, some of exceptional calibre, go on to study mathematics or a related subject at university and we offer a special programme of support including preparation for entrance exams (such as MAT, TMUA and STEP) and interviews. Pupils 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.
