Maths Enrichment Day

Partner: Beacon Academy, Crowborough
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Academic

Mayfield School’s Maths Enrichment Day, designed for year 10s to encourage them to think about studying Maths and further Maths at A level, was a ‘inspirational’ occasion according to the participants. 37 students from local State Schools (Beacon School, Crowborough; Uckfield College; Heathfield Community College, and St Gregory’s School in Tunbridge Wells) attended a carousel of workshops, before having lunch with Mayfield pupils. One of Mayfield’ school minibuses collected the pupils from Heathfield at no charge, enabling them to take part in the day. The activities culminated in a talk from Ben Sparks: ‘the creation of Number’. Ben is an entertaining Mathematician (and Musician) who works with the Advanced Maths Support Programme and delivers his stimulating and original talks all over the world
