It has been a pleasure to accompany six Year 8 students to the University of Bath recently for a series of Maths Masterclasses run by The Royal Institution.

The aim of these sessions is to stimulate and encourage young people in the art and practice of mathematics and to help them develop a sense of enjoyment in the subjects.

Seeing the hard work and effort put in by our students has been amazing. They have worked alongside Professors as well as final year students covering topics as diverse as Fractals and Roulette. They have been challenged and stretched – and all on a Saturday morning! That takes dedication.
