The Winchester Maths Summer School (WMSS) took place online in 2021. The course is aimed at year 12 students from state schools hoping to study mathematics at university, and is focused on the pervasive theme of ‘Proof in Mathematics’.

Sessions are lead by teachers from Winchester College, supported by undergraduates from leading universities including many WMSS alumni. Last year’s students enjoyed the course immensely, and all of them said they would recommend it to a friend.

“Being in an environment with others who appreciate maths in the same way that I do was very encouraging and inspiring.”

Whilst it was a shame not to be returning to a physical camp, the online setting allowed for flexibility. Rather than packing all the maths into five days, there were three evening sessions a week for a month.
