Pupils and Students from Year 11 and 12 attended Lancaster University for The Florence Nightingale Day (January 2022).

The event hosted by The University of Lancaster was an opportunity for our female mathematicians from Years 11 and 12 to listen to talks given by three successful women in mathematics at various stages of their careers. They were provided with information about the broad range of possibilities offered by a degree in mathematics or statistics and took part in informal discussions about how they could get involved in areas that interested them to help enhance their university applications.

A mathematical challenge, (competing against other schools), was also part of the agenda and our pupils and students displayed impressive perseverance and teamwork skills.
