Talented Mathematician invited to top summer school

Brentwood School Maths prodigy Andrew Ejemai has been selected to take part in the prestigious National Mathematics Summer School 2016 which is being held at St Anne’s College, Oxford. 

The summer school, which is organised by the UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT), will be an opportunity for 15-year-old Andrew and other high-achieving young mathematicians to experience working on intriguing and stimulating mathematics in the company of like-minded individuals. 

Andrew is one of 40 students from across the country who have been invited to the August week-long summer school following an excellent performance in the Intermediate Maths Challenge.

Mr Tim Acton, Deputy Head of Mathematics at Brentwood, said: “Andrew is one of the strongest schoolboy mathematicians I have encountered and he is sure to gain much valuable experience from this summer camp.”

Back in August 2013, 12-year-old Andrew became the youngest student in the School’s long and illustrious history to score a phenomenal A* grade in his Maths A Level.

The summer school is sponsored by the UKMT and supported by The OR Society. During the week, Andrew will have the opportunity to explore the breadth and depth of Mathematics and to collaborate with other students.
