Junior Maths Challenge Success

Chew Valley is celebrating success in the UK Junior Maths Challenge, as our Year 7 and 8 students achieved 7 Gold, 16 Silver and 26 Bronze Awards, totalling 49 awards. This represents an improvement on the excellent 39 awards achieved last year.

The Maths Challenge is about applying knowledge to interesting questions in unusual settings. Pupils do not receive any extra coaching for it, but have to think on their feet and keep their wits about them!

Special congratulations to Year 7, who achieved six out of the seven Gold Awards, and to Beatrix Banks (7V) who achieved Gold with the best result in the school.

Congratulations to all who took part!
