The Runshaw College Mathematics Challenge
3 April 2019
Priory entered two teams into the Runshaw College Schools Maths Challenge last week – and impressed Head of Maths, Mr Kenrick.
Seven Year 10 Gifted & Talented students spent an evening at Runshaw College, with altogether around 140 Key Stage 4 students taking part.
Runshaw described it as one of the best high scoring challenges to date and Mr Kenrick said: “It was extremely competitive. We had two teams and there were several rounds, including problem solving and general maths challenges while teams had to work collaboratively.
“The standard was really high and, while we didn’t win, we put on a good strong show and I was impressed with all who took part.
“What also delighted me was their enthusiasm about maths and hopefully many of these students will go onto study maths at A-Level standard and above.”
Well done to Akalvily, Colin, Sasha, Lucy, Holly, Miya and Paige.
