Where is it held?
The events will take place at the Mathematical Institute in Oxford. Please note that there is no parking available on site, but minibuses can drop off students (accompanied by a teacher) before going to park in one of the Park and Rides. For more information on parking in Oxford, please see the council's website.
Year 12 students (aged over 16) may attend unaccompanied.
How much does it cost?
The day is free to attend. Unfortunately we cannot provide assistance with travel or provide lunch. If you are travelling from very far away and need to stay overnight, please consider contacting your link college.
Attended in previous years?
Please note that some of the activities will be repeated from previous It All Adds Up conferences, so you may wish not to attend again with the same students.
If your school would like to make this an annual trip, we recommend prioritising the year group that you think would most benefit.
