The Summer 2021 Mid IB Maths Preparation Course

Summer 2021 Course Update 

Due to the continuing uncertainty caused by the pandemic it is still impossible to say with certainty that these courses will be able to run for internal and/or external students with face-to-face classroom-based teaching as planned. Anyone who books a place on a course(s) and pays a deposit and/or full course fees will be entitled to a full refund if the courses are cancelled or if a student is unable to attend due to circumstances beyond their control related to the Covid-19 pandemic. We may also consider an online course model – further details to come as and when appropriate.
 

Paul Thompson (Course Co-ordinator)
