Y10 Stars Shine at Maths Feast

Towards the end of last term, 16 students and Miss Lloyd travelled to Horbury Academy in Wakefield to compete in the Year 10 Maths Feast.

The students competed in teams of four in five rounds of Mathematical challenges aimed at testing both knowledge and team working skills. All four of Kirk Balk's teams showed Mathematical excellence and determination throughout each round. This outstanding effort resulted in two of our teams walking away with four awards between them.

A big congratulations to R. Bhowaneesing, B. Glaves, O. Hayes and M. Selous who claimed second place overall as well as J. Armitage, A. Hancock, O. Haran and E. Spooner who finished 1 point behind them to secure third place overall. The girls also went on to claim the best performing team in the Geometry round as well being nominated for and winning the award for best teamwork.

Miss Lloyd said afterwards, 'This award was a significant honour as they were nominated by two members of staff from rival teams. It was a fantastic effort all round from our students.'
