As you will have seen, the Government is encouraging secondary schools to consider a partial return for Year 10 and Year 12 students from Monday 1st June 2020. Our view continues to be that it is important that we take appropriate, extensive and considered actions to assure the safety of all members of our school community to make the right decision at the right time.

April 2019

Some of our Sixth Form Mathematicians - Leon D, Abbi S, Euan E and Marshall G

To support their studies and reinforce their learning, A-Level Mathematics students in Years 12 and 13 have competed in the annual UKMT Senior Team Maths challenge. This is a prestigious competition which encourages teamwork whilst solving non-routine maths problems.

Our Sixth Formers look forward to taking part in the competition each year, and always enjoy testing their mathematical ability against young mathematicians from other schools.

This year, students competed both as a team and on an individual level with great success. Euan E won Best in Year for Year 13, and Alex P swept the rest of the categories winning a Bronze certificate, Best in Year for Year 12, and Best in School.

Not only is participation in the competition an excellent way to test new knowledge and skills outside of the classroom, but these accolades are also an impressive addition to any CV and personal statement, and a talking point for interviews.
