Cambridge Maths Lectures
It is with pleasure that we write to inform you of an exciting and interesting opportunity for your son/daughter. Long Stratton High School is taking a group of 30 excellent mathematicians to Cambridge to watch a set of Maths Inspiration Lectures. This is now the seventh consecutive year we have organised this trip, after receiving excellent feedback from previous years.
Maths Inspiration is one of the largest enrichment programmes for teenagers in the UK and designed especially for 14-17 year olds. This year’s show will consist of three interactive lectures, ‘Windmills of Your Mind’, ‘Simply the Best’ and ‘Your Starter for Ten’, followed by a Q and A session.
The lectures begin at 1:15pm at the Cambridge West Road Concert Hall but we leave Long Stratton after morning registration to give them an opportunity to experience Cambridge before the lectures begin. With your permission, pupils will be unsupervised at this time. We aim to leave the venue at 3:45pm and expect to return by 5:30pm at the latest.
Your child would need to bring a packed lunch or money to buy lunch. If your child is entitled to a free school lunch we are able to provide this from the school canteen upon request. We expect pupils to dress in correct uniform and would suggest each pupil bring a fully charged mobile phone to update pick-up arrangements just in case the coach arrives early or late.
