Then the Boole Prize 2022 was given to Aidan Mcpolland for the best performance in Year 2.  Other prizes and commendations for outstanding results in maths will be presented at the beginning of the new academic year. (Prizes for Y3 students are postponed until graduation in September.) Prizes and commendations to students for academic achievements are supplemented with Amazon vouchers.

The celebration continued with the group photo, walks, socializing and relaxation in the park. The place is of great historic interest, served as home of the famous 617 “Dambusters” Squadron during WWII. A brief lecture on the history of the place and its connection with RAF was given by the local Marketing Executive Lisa.
