KCLMS Summer Schools

Girls like Maths (and Physics!) Summer School

During this completely free brilliant new Summer School 160 female, and female identifying, year 10 students will get to explore the mathematical sciences outside of the school curriculum. Over the four days you will explore new ideas, do fun experiments, go on a trip, listen to female speakers in the field, and practise your problem solving - this should be an exciting, fun, and invaluable 4 days for anyone who enjoys maths or science.

Each day will run from approximately 09.45am until 3.15pm (exact times will be confirmed nearer to the time) and takes places at King’s Maths School in Lambeth (we’re opposite the Imperial War Museum), except the day of the trip. Lunch will be provided.

Step up to A level (Maths, Physics, Further Maths) Summer School 2022

The purpose of this amazing free Summer School is to enable Year 11 students like you to experience a taste of Maths, Physics and Further Maths at sixth form level. You will meet some of the ‘big ideas’ in these subjects at A level. Over the four days you will also practise some of the key skills required to be successful in these subjects and will put yourselves in the best possible position to start these subjects in September. The Summer School will also include guest speakers, practical experiments in the university’s labs, and lots of opportunities for collaborative problem solving.

Each day will run from approximately 10.00am until 4.00pm (exact times will be confirmed nearer to the time) and predominantly takes places at King’s College London Strand campus. Lunch will be provided.

Who?

Year 11 students planning to study Maths and Physics in Year 12. It would also be good if you are planning to study, or interested to find out more about studying, Further Maths next year, but this is not essential
