“I just wanted to say thank you for the brilliant sessions that Ifor kindly presented to our students during these challenging times. It really made the pupils think about why Maths was important and how their Maths lessons can relate to so many different careers. The pupils have continued to talk about the sessions after the events which is a positive sign. Thanks again”
