It All Adds Up

Conferences for Girls

Are you looking to inspire your girl students to continue Maths? Do you think they would benefit from a day hearing about and engaging in all things Maths, alongside other girls?

The Mathematical Institute and Department of Statistics host three day-conferences in Mathematics for girls in January each year. Please note the Year 9 and Year 10-11 days are very oversubscribed. State school attendees will be decided by a random ballot. Unfortunately we will not be able to accept independent schools this year.

Who is it for?

Girls! The day is to inspire young women to continue with Maths education. We can only accept bookings from UK schools.

7th January: Girls in Year 9

8th January: Girls in Years 10-11

9th January: Girls in Years 12-13

Girls in Years 12-13 should be studying Maths at A-level or equivalent.

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 and 13 students may attend unaccompanied.

How much does it cost?

The day is free to attend. Unfortunately we cannot provide assistance with travel or provide lunch.

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.

How to book

Schools may apply to bring up to 12 Year 9-11 students and up to 5 Year 12-13 students. Extra students may be placed on a waiting list (please submit additional forms). State schools will get preference, but we will accommodate everyone if at all possible. Applications will close on 8th November at 2pm.
