Heading to Girton

Home > News > Heading to Girton

This coming Saturday, a group of Lincoln UTC A Level and Year 11 students are heading to the University of Cambridge for the Girton College Mathematical Open Day.

The day starts at 11.30 with a talk on ‘Cambridge, Girton and how to apply’ with Q&A sessions following before lunch. In the afternoon, the students will take part in the Mathematics Faculty Event.

Lincoln UTC’s Mathematics Department believes it is important to encourage students to explore the opportunities available to them for the continuing study of Mathematics and Physics at the highest level. This trip is one of several organised to provide the chance to look at a prestigious university during the formative period of Year 12.

Girton has a proud history as an institution that changed the world. Founded in 1869 by Emily Davies, Barbara Bodichon and Lady Stanley, the College was Britain’s first residential college for women offering an education at degree level. Girton was also the first of the Women’s Colleges to go mixed – over thirty years ago. Today, Girton is a vibrant community of scholars, from all walks of life, united in their passion for learning, and determined to do well.
