Year 6 Maths Masterclasses
Each year we welcome about 60 pupils, nominated by their teachers, to the maths department to take part in our Year 6 Maths Masterclasses. The pupils, drawn from the Witney partnership primary schools, attend eight teaching sessions at Henry Box over the year. Each session had a follow-up work-pack which gave the pupils an opportunity to practise and develop their skills either back at their schools or at home. The course aims to give young mathematicians a wider appreciation of the subject and to introduce them to ways of thinking about problems which will be useful in all their future studies.
The course has been running since 2006 and we have now seen many of its participants go on to study maths at A-level and beyond.
