Last month it was the Year 8’s turn to take part in the MAT Maths Enrichment Programme and we took a group of 12 to the Dean Academy where for the first time, all the trust schools were represented. This time the students were in school teams which made for an exciting element of competition with them all vying for the title of best Year 8 mathematicians in the trust!

There were a number of different challenges to take part in including individual and group challenges and a nail biting relay round where the competition really ramped up!

It was brilliant to see all the students working so well together and really enjoying the challenges even though some were pretty tricky!

I’m pleased to say that Bradon came second overall which is a fantastic achievement and they should all be really proud of themselves.
