Further Mathematics

Many schools and colleges in Hertfordshire (and elsewhere) are currently unable to offer mathematics education beyond standard A-level Mathematics. However, students who wish to go on to university to study for mathematics-related degrees such as computing, physics and engineering, as well as Mathematics itself, benefit enormously from studying Further Mathematics, which greatly improves their preparation for university-level study.   Mathematics-related subjects are vital for our economy and young people with good Mathematics qualifications have excellent career prospects.

The Further Mathematics Support Programme is a government-funded initiative, supported by the Department for Education and is managed by MEI. It follows on from the very successful Further Mathematics Network initiative, which was set up following a successful 5 year pilot project that was developed by MEI and funded by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation.
