National Young Mathematicians' Award

Miss Maclean, Head of Mathematics, writes: Over the last three weeks, four children from Year 6 have been taking part in the National Young Mathematicians' Award at the Explore Learning Centre in Leamington Spa.

They performed brilliantly in the first round and were invited back to the semi-final. I am delighted to announce that even though they were just pipped at the post - by three points, to be precise - to a place in the Grand Final at Cambridge University, they were the overall winning team for Coventry and Warwickshire, scoring 94% for their teamwork, presentation and approach to the semi-final challenge. Huge congratulations to Glesni C, Owen F, Oliver H and Emilie L.
