30 girls in Year 9 recently attended a maths inspiration morning in Liverpool.
The morning was very interactive allowing everybody to take part.  Three speakers challenged the pupils with individual puzzles – with chocolate prizes for the first person to know the answers.  
The speakers explained to the group how maths can be used to help explain things in everyday life, for example how crowds behave, how mobile phones work and even the workings of an electric guitar.

The day was concluded with a lovely picnic in the park.  

*Also, just before half term Year 8 pupils took part in the Junior Mathematical Challenge,     organised by the UK Mathematics Trust. 

Over 250,000 pupils from across the UK sat the Junior Maths Challenge with roughly the     top 6% receiving a gold certificate, the next 13% silver and the next 21% a bronze. 

The questions are challenging and rely not only on work covered in lessons but also spatial awareness and the ability to solve problems without a calculator. 
All our girls did extremely well and we are delighted to announce that we achieved 2 gold, 13 silver and 14 bronze certificates.
