UKMT Maths Challenge 2015

November 9, 2015

What a wonderful week in Secondary! Yet again, I had the pleasure of visiting a number of classrooms in a variety of subject disciplines to experience the learning journeys of our Bromsgrove students. I was extremely impressed with the depth and breadth of knowledge that I saw, coupled with the sheer enjoyment and delight from students as they embarked upon many different pathways to expand their understanding. One striking element was the growth of independence and confidence amongst our student body; from the youngest in Year 7 all the way through to our most senior students in Year 13. The creative and collaborative environments that permeate our school are wonderful to experience and students are producing such individualised, beautiful and precise work in all subjects, from Art to Science. There was also a UKMT Maths Challenge for our Senior students and they were most definitely challenged to perform at their best! On Friday, we introduced the Big House Quiz, with all form groups taking part through the wonder of technology simultaneously. The winners this time were Mr Lee’s Year 7 form in Edwards, so a huge congratulations to all members of this tutor group. We are all looking forward to the next quiz and seeing who wins!
