Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

The Maths department offers a range of enrichment opportunities throughout the year. Maths teachers regularly make use of resources such as Nrich, resourceaholic and Don Steward within their teaching, challenging pupils to think beyond the syllabus and improve their mathematical reasoning. We have also taken students on a regular basis to STEM events run by RAF Cranwell. These events have seen our students using their Mathematical skills to solve real-life problems that the armed forces encounter every day.

We enter students in Years 7 and 8 into the UK Junior Maths Challenge and regularly have students who progress to the next round, the Junior Olympiad. We also enter students in Years 9, 10 and 11 into the Intermediate Challenge and students in Years 12 and 13 into the Senior Challenge, with many students regularly progressing to the Olympiad or the European Kangaroo. The department supports all the team maths challenges and enters teams into the Junior, Intermediate and Senior Team UK team challenges with regular successes.
