Beyond the curriculum we run many enrichment opportunities, including:
• Junior (Year 7-8), Intermediate (Year 9-11) and Senior (6th form) UKMT Mathematical Challenges. There is one annual event for each age range, plus a fortnightly ‘Excellent’ challenge. Students may enter their own age range or higher. So, a Year 8 may enter the Junior, Intermediate and Senior challenges if they are really keen - and some do! Sixth form girls have the opportunity to be entered for the challenging Mathematical Olympiad for Girls
• We also run Team Challenges for the very best performers in the school challenges, where we travel with a SHS team and compete against other Lincolnshire schools.
• The students from all year groups enter themselves for the National Cipher Challenge, run by Southampton University, with a top prize of £1,000 from GCHQ and an awards ceremony at Bletchley Park.
• Our Sixth Form Maths Prefects run a Key Stage 3 maths club every Wednesday lunchtime, with fun topics from hexaflexagons to mathemagic...
