Miss Taylor - Head of Department
Mr Chokshi - KS5 Progress and Achievement Lead
This department has a long history of academic success. It has become a very popular choice at both A/S and A level, with over 140 taking A/S maths in year 12 and approximately 60 choosing to continue at A2. Further Maths has been the jewel in Barking Abbey’s crown for almost 10 years- students often achieve double A*’s here and progress to read Mathematics at Cambridge, Warwick, Kings, Imperial and many other illustrious universities.
The Sixth Form teaching team has experience and strength in depth, led by Mr Chokshi with over 25 years A level teaching to his name, followed by Mr Sapal who teaches all the modules across maths and Further Maths whilst catering for STEP provision. Mr Thamarajah who has been teaching A level since 2011 and with Mrs Taylor the head of department who has been actively involved in the delivery of A level Maths for many years, we have a full complement of dedicated and successful teaching staff ready to help students achieve their potential and beyond.
"Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas."
