My school does not offer Further Maths so I was wondering if I should take Computer Science along with Physics, Maths and Chemistry to make my application more competitive.

3 A levels is enough. What subject do you intend studying at university. If Maths you may find this useful https://amsp.org.uk/

I'm looking for Computer Science at university. Is 3 enough even though
most applicants will come with Further Maths as well?

3 is the standard amount. Other than sometimes Imperial or Oxbridge all universities make offers only on 3 subjects. Imperial and Oxbridge sometimes make offers on 4 if your studying 4 but will make offers on 3. Computer science is a better fit than Chemistry for CS. Most universities only ask for Maths but Lancaster and Nottingham prefer Computing to Maths. If you wish to study FM contact the body on the link that I have given and you can self study with their assistance.
