The second Y10-11 Maths Enrichment Seminar was a roaring success with a capacity attendance of students who are aiming for Grade 9 in their Maths GCSEs.

The workshop gives the students the chance to learn techniques and methods to help them with the most demanding questions in the GCSE specification. The seminar was run by Mr Gareth Rees, the Maths Lead at Nexus, who said: “It is a really valuable opportunity for those students who are serious about achieving the top grade. To get a Grade 9 you have to be confident is using complex mathematical techniques quickly and accurately to solve problems. We are teaching the students who come to these seminars to tackle problems in the most logical way possible. They are developing their problem solving skills and this will give them the advantage in their exams.”
