Why Maths? Why Tallis? Why not?!
Studying Maths has never been as important as it is today. It is the foundation of all the sciences and anyone aiming to study a scientific subject at university should consider it. It is also one of the most sought after subjects by employers in any field. But most importantly, it is interesting, challenging and fun!
At Tallis, our enthusiastic teaching team has an excellent record of success over many years in preparing students to succeed at Maths and Further Maths A-level. We aim to provide a rich and varied mathematical experience both inside and outside the classroom, exposing students to the uses of Maths in the real world through enrichment events, trips and visits to companies.
We know Maths is a challenging subject. If you are finding it difficult, you can attend one of our many additional support sessions, or you can always just come and ask our experienced team of teachers who are always willing to help. If you are a high-flier, we have an established Further Maths course with an excellent record of success, and you may also be eligible to join our Leading Learner scheme and work with students across the school.
We are currently running a pilot of Core maths. This is aimed at students who are studying other emails such as Business, the Sciences or the Humanities. You could even do it if you were doing A-level Maths. More info can be found here.
For those of you who just missed your C at GCSE we also offer a re-take course.

Success stories this year
The university offers received by our students for summer 2015 to study maths, maths and computing, or engineering include Warwick, Cambridge, Imperial, Bath, Kings, Bristol, Birmingham, Exeter, Newcastle, Nottingham, Manchester and UCL, to name but a few.
Our year 13 further maths results last summer were in approximately the top 10% of those achieved nationally.
We have sent students of all ability levels on many different courses and activities throughout the year. These have included for example C1/C2 workshops at Greenwich University and STEP and MAT preparation at UCL.
Things are looking good for our current yr 12 further mathematicians too. I have just completed supporting references for Sohil, Melika and Sophie who have all applied for a place on the week long course at UCL. This is cncouraging widening participation and UK undergraduate recruitment. There are only 20 places available so they may not all get places, but at least they are showing enthusiasm to aim high for their mathematical studies!
