Further Maths Support Programme

Today we were lucky enough to welcome the Further Maths Support Programme for Wales to Ysgol Rhiwabon. The FMSPW work with schools across Wales promoting the uptake of A-level Maths and Further Maths amongst students.

Both Years 10 & 11 were able to take part in a workshop where Maths problems were discussed, simplified and related to everyday situations. The importance of Maths to several different career paths enabled the students to understand the need to work hard at achieving the best possible grade for their future.

Students were also led through university applications and how many courses either require Maths A-level or see it as an advantage. We hope that students were inspired to take their Maths career up to the next level by considering further qualifications after GCSE.

Many thanks to the FMSPW for sharing their knowledge and expertise.
