Mathematical Equipment

The Mathematics Department requires each student to have an electronic, scientific calculator. We prefer Casio models, with our first preference for all years being Casio fx-991EX classwiz  as currently this is a minimum requirement for A-Level.

Other Casio models are sufficient for GCSE and below and some of the models are listed here: fx82TL, fx570MS, fx570W, fx911V, fx100S, fx992S, fx85V, fx100W, fx82MS, fx115W. There are many more available and suitable but please ensure that the calculator you buy includes the fraction key.

Students are also required to have a set of Mathematical Instruments including: protractor (angle measure), ruler, compass.

Sixth Form students studying Mathematics must have the preferred scientific model listed described above, but may also wish to use graphics calculators. The Maths department will order the latest Casio colour graphics model (CG-50), as recommend by Edexcel, at a cost, each September for those who have not managed to source their own.

Other graphics calculators include Casio fx9860G, fx9750, Sharp EL-9900, Texas TI-30, TI-34, TI-83, TI-84 and are all acceptable. Please note that graphics calculators which have a keyboard or are symbolic manipulators are not allowed in GCE exams. Examples are Texas TI-89 and TI-92.

Locker padlocks - optional

Lockers are provided to hold the majority of students’ books. If students wish to lock their lockers they should obtain a ‘combination’ padlock and give the number to their form teacher.
