Last term the Maths and English department joined forces for a Year 8 writing competition. Pupils in Year 8 were taught a range of mathematical concepts over the course of three weeks. These concepts were then used as inspiration by the English department. Pupils wrote creative and imaginative pieces on a range of mathematical ideas: a world with no number two, the golden ratio, what is infinity? and many others.
The overall winner was Patrick Mowles.
