About this day

Welcome to our GCSE Maths in Action day!

The goal of our GCSE Maths in Action day is to help students deepen their understanding of key mathematical concepts, improve their problem-solving skills and most importantly, generate excitement for all things maths! Our experienced speakers will guide your students through a variety of engaging and interactive activities that are designed to enhance learning and leave them wowed.

As part of our GCSE maths day, we also offer an Exam Masterclass for your students. This class is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to excel in their GCSE maths exams. The class is led by experienced examiners who have a deep understanding of the exam format and the types of questions that are likely to be asked.

We look forward to working with you and helping your students achieve their full potential in maths!
