Summer IB Maths Preparation Course 2020
Summer 2020 Course Cancellation
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the continued uncertainty surrounding it we have unfortunately made the decision to cancel the August 2020 Mid IB Subject Review courses and the Pre-IB Maths course in its original format. For anyone who has already paid for the courses a full refund will be arranged. We are planning to offer a modified format of the August 2020 Mid IB Subject Review courses and the Pre-IB Maths course to current internal Sevenoaks School IB students ONLY and free of charge. Further details of the format of these courses will be sent to the appropriate Sevenoaks School students and parents soon.
Paul Thompson (Course Co-ordinator)

These courses are not aimed at students who have already completed the Additional Maths course.
