Members of our team of expert teachers are offering visits to schools in Norfolk to deliver lessons on enriching maths. The sessions are designed to last an hour in length for one class of approximately 30 students and can be delivered to schools during maths lessons or after-school. The topics available are as follows and can be tailored to match the age range and ability of the students:
