One student said:

“It blew my mind to see how conditional formatting in an excel spreadsheet can be used to recreate a photograph!”

Teacher of Maths, Mr Sharrock, said:

“The boys behaved excellently and did their very best with every activity. It was a pleasure to witness their brains melting at the Maths ingenuity!

"I am sure they were inspired by the mathematics they witnessed and this will encourage them to pursue post-GCSE Maths in the future.”
