On Friday 28th February, four of our top Key Stage 3 mathematicians visited Lancing College for the UKMT Regional Team Maths Challenge. The team had to compete in four different sessions across the day involving higher level maths questions and problem solving activities. Our team communicated excellently with one another and developed exceptional strategies for the different challenges, allowing them to continuously improve their score at each stage. In total, 28 schools from the South East area competed and our amazing team achieved 4th place, beating, amongst many others, the host team and were only preceded by 3 top independent schools. Originally being daunted by the clearly intelligent competition, our team was overcome with pride when the scores were announced. A fantastic day!
