Education in Buckinghamshire

 

In Buckinghamshire, some 50% of all state funded secondary schools are consistently stretched beyond their maximum capacity. Of the areas 88% of students who ultimately decide to stay on in education following their GCSE’s, just 54% end up attending University, with 3% of these individuals gaining places at Oxford or Cambridge and a total 20% studying at Russell Group institutions. A good knowledge of maths is important and opens doors further down the line. Look no further than Maths Doctor tuition for boosting those grades.

Buckinghamshire still has the tripartite system meaning that students are assigned selectively to grammar and secondary modern schools, based on the score of their 11 plus exams. This means that children have more pressure at an earlier age, and maths tuition can relieve some of this pressure and problems. In 2013 the 73 schools in the Buckinghamshire area scored an average of 71.3% for students gaining 5 good GCSEs, which is over 10% above the national average of 59.2%. Unlike many of the other authority areas some of the state funded schools also gain 100% good grades for their students along with the Independent schools. Aylesbury High school also achieved 100% for students getting 3 A-Levels and 26% getting AAB grades, far above the national average of 9.6%. Many of the Sixth Forms attached to Grammar schools achieve the high 90% for students gaining five good GCSEs. However admittance is often by entrance exams including maths, maths tuition can help students to achieve their full potential.
