Preston Park are the first primary school in Brent to host the Royal Institute of Great Britain's Mathematics Masterclasses to Year 5 pupils across local Brent schools.

Ri Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science Masterclasses are free hands-on and interactive extracurricular sessions led by talented and enthusiastic volunteers from education, academia and industry for school students all around the UK.

The Masterclass programme was started by Prof Sir Christopher Zeeman in 1981 after the popularity of his 1978 Christmas Lectures on mathematics.

The Ri originally ran Secondary Mathematics Masterclasses for students aged between 12 and 14 and we have since extended the programme to provide Mathematics Masterclasses for primary aged pupils, as well as cross curricular Engineering and Computer Science Masterclasses.

The unique sessions go beyond the school curriculum and bring maths, engineering and computer science to life in surprising topics such as art and sculpture, design, medicine and cryptography.

The Masterclasses aim to open the eyes of young people to the excitement, beauty and value of mathematics, engineering and computer science and in turn, inspire the next generation.
