Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Online Network

Raising Girls' Participation at Level 3


The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Online Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project allowing teachers of maths to meet, to collaborate and to share professional development. We meet regularly and the programme is a mixture of interactive discussion and speaker-led training events.


We know that overall girls tend to be under-represented in Level 3 maths (Core Maths, A Level Maths and Further Maths). This session will be delivered by Rachel Beddoes, AMSP Girls' Participation and Careers Coordinator. Rachel will share suggestions to help you encourage girls to consider taking maths beyond GCSE. Although the material is specifically pitched at girls, the ideas would be appropriate for all genders. There will be time at the end for questions and discussion.


  • Encouraging girls' participation in advanced mathematics
  • Use key findings drawn from data to increase participation at Level 3

Who will benefit from attending?

KS3 to KS5 Maths teachers, KS4/5 Coordinators, members of the SLT.
