More students than ever take A Level maths at Wisbech school
An increasing number of sixth form students are opting to study maths at A level, with Thomas Clarkson Academy seeing its largest ever cohort of further maths students this year.
One of the driving forces behind the trend was the introduction of GCSE further maths at the Wisbech school last year, which provided Year 11s with a bridging course to further maths, as well as stretching the higher-ability students.
All students who completed the qualification then went on to take further maths at A level. Around 20 current Year 11 students have been offered the opportunity to take GCSE further maths.
