Outstanding Mathematics student Daisy has received an invitation to Queen's College, Oxford for a one week training camp. The main focus of this UK Mathematics Trust Olympiad Camp is to offer a week's intensive coaching in Mathematics outside the conventional syllabus. Only a few of the most able young mathematicians in the country are selected.
Mathematics Coordinator, Mr Quantrell, commented:
“In addition to the training, the course will be used to identify potential members of a squad of students who will continue training throughout the year with a view to representing the UK in one of the future International Mathematical Olympiads.
“There are only 24 pupils on the camp.”
Daisy is delighted to have this opportunity. She enthused: “The teachers at Moreton have offered such stretch and challenge in the lessons, pushing far beyond what I need for GCSE. The training camp will help me to take my knowledge even further.”
Head of STEM at Moreton, Mr Lang, said: “This is a great achievement and Daisy deserves full credit for this success. To put the course in context, I know from previous years that pretty much everyone on the course will go on to Oxford or Cambridge to study either Mathematics or a Mathematics related degree.”
Reflecting on the enduring success of mathematicians at Moreton, he added:
“This is the third time we have got a girl onto this course in 5 years (only 22-24 students per year are able to attend). That means we have produced 3 out of the UK's top 110-120 mathematicians of the last 5 years. Most schools will never get a single student onto this course.”
Daisy will attend the course from Sunday 18th August to Saturday 24th August 2019.
