Highgate’s large and successful Mathematics Department strives to ensure every one of our pupils becomes the best mathematician that they can be. Standards across our School are high and, yet, we are equally proud of our record in helping pupils who find it difficult to develop confidence in the subject or to achieve strong examination results.
You all study Mathematics in the core curriculum up to Year 11, where we follow the GCSE course. Over 200 pupils enter each of the UK Mathematics Challenges and we have received a good number of Gold and Silver awards, with around 20 pupils qualifying for follow-on rounds. In recent years, we have also had our pupils placed in the top 50 nationally for both the Intermediate and Senior Olympiads.
Our A level in Mathematics remains Highgate’s most popular A level choice, with over half of our Sixth Form choosing it. Around a third also study A level Further Mathematicians. Standards are high and, each year, we usually have a number of successful Oxbridge applicants.
