Award Winning Workshops
We are an award-winning educational workshop provider and received international recognition this year for our work in schools from the Falling Wall Foundation. We have developed unique concepts to relate calculations to real-life. For example, we use real-world maps to carry out scaling and distance calculations combined with trigonometry. This is what makes our maths workshop stand out from the rest.
