The Academy was established in January 2018 to provide a range of exciting and stimulating educational experiences, for children of all ages.

Over the 8 weeks we will be unpicking the skills needed to really understand and enjoy algebra. We’ll examine how algebra can be useful for practical problem solving and enhance understanding of symbols to represent unknown numbers.

There will be many opportunities to ask questions, to think creatively about patterns, graphs and equations.
