Tomline Mathematical Prize

Administrative / Biographical history

The prize was founded in 1846 by George Tomline OE with a gift of £1000. The formal deed listed here seems to have been drawn up to set the prize on a more regular footing after the death of Provost Hodgson, one of those to whom the money was originally given. The prize was open to the whole school and the winner received £30 worth of books (£32 by the 20th century). In approximately 2009 the prize was reorganised and now takes the form of an 8000 word essay on one of a number of set topics, open to C Block only. It is judged by 4 masters from the Maths Department and the winner receives £100. The notice states that 'The finished work should be accessible to a reader with a broad mathematical knowledge, but who may not be familiar with the details of the topic'.
