Bletchley Park is delighted to have been voted Best Venue for Maths Learning for the second year in a row at the School Travel Awards 2017/18 . Kate Travers, Head of Learning, was presented with the trophy by TV newsreader and journalist Fiona Bruce.
A variety of facilitated workshops for primary and secondary school groups are available at Bletchley Park, with specific focus on mathematics, computing and history. Each workshop is 60 minutes in duration and is designed to be engaging, hands-on and appropriately challenging for students of all abilities. Travers said: “We aim to inspire students to learn about the practical application of mathematics through engaging, enlightening and challenging activities relevant to students now and in future careers. Thank you to all who voted for Bletchley Park, we are delighted to have received recognition for our activities through this award.”
Around 300 teachers, educational visit co-ordinators and school travel experts were present at a special lunch ceremony for the second School Travel Awards at The Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London. The awards recognise excellence and innovation made to learning outside of the classroom in a wide range of arenas. Rob Yandell, Publisher of School Travel Organiser magazine, said: “The role of education in an ever changing world has never been more important. We all learn in different ways but these awards pay tribute to the tremendous contribution made to pupils’ overall learning experience at both primary and secondary level by people, places and experiences outside of the classroom.”
