Joan Clarke Maths Residential at Newnham

If you are a current lower 6th form student at a maintained-sector school or college, and are good at maths, you might be interested in our

Joan Clarke Maths Residential

at Newnham College, Cambridge

running from 1 – 4 September 2015.


We will give 30 girls the opportunity to explore the differences between Maths, Physics and Engineering at University, so they can make a more informed choice about what they might want to study. Newnham is an all-female College, and apart from learning about what might await you in a mathematics or physics or engineering course, the participants will also get to know the College and what it has to offer. We will also include admissions information for applications to Cambridge, and some fun activities to get to know Cambridge. For more information on this Joan Clarke Maths Residential at Newnham, please email, with Joan Clarke Maths Residential as the title of your email. Details of how to apply will then be sent by the end of May.

For more background information, read my post “Thinking of Maths at University?”
