Congratulations to Priory's Team 1 who solved the ultimate maths puzzle in the Runshaw College 2024 Maths Challenge.

Last Thursday evening, thirteen schools from across the North West competed for the ultimate title of ‘Runshaw Maths Challenge Champions 2024’.  This is an annual and prestigious event intended to inspire and challenge able mathematicians by working through problem solving activities.

Priory entered two teams, with the second group of four pupils coming in a respectable 9th place out of the twenty taking part.

A spokesperson from the college said, "After multiple rounds of challenging problems and solving questions, the title went to Team 1 from Penwortham Priory, with Team 1 from Albany Academy coming in second place and Team 1 from St Michael's CE High School in Chorley coming in third place.

"It was lovely to see so many budding mathematicians - well done to everyone who came and took part."

Maths teacher, Mr Hunter, who accompanied the Priory contingent added, "There were three rounds with some really difficult maths questions. Out of the twenty teams in total, they managed to beat nineteen other teams; that's the 76 best mathematicians from other schools!"

Congratulations to - Year 11: Samuel D, Preston McM, Ryan H and Isaac S.  Year 10: Niamh P, Jake L, Emily P and Agnes K.
