The Lower School Mathematics Master Class on Tuesday investigated folding paper to form shapes. This creative workshop enabled the participants to build a fantastic rotating image of a 3D box and then to start on a rainbow flower or a pop up pyramid. The girls were enthusiastic about the activities and interested in how a 2D net came alive as a moving 3D sculpture. The workshop was enjoyed by both our Mathematics academic scholars and girls from a variety of maths sets working together.

‘How does a lion get its Vitamin C?’, ‘Which is more powerful: word or image?’, ‘What are your views on the voting age for the referendum on leaving Europe?’ These were just some of the questions posed by external subject specialists to our students undertaking mock Oxbridge interviews this week.
