At CSMS Maths is one of the most popular subjects to choose as an A Level.

Our results are exceptional:


A*-B in Maths A-Level


A*-B in Further Maths A-Level

A level Maths

Includes work on the core ideas of algebra, trigonometry and calculus as well as mechanics and statistics.

A level Further Maths

I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive environment; there was challenge, but it was pitched at the right level. Everyone at CSMS is so lovely and I didn’t want to leave.
