Pupils from Hartsfield JMI Primary School in Baldock have won a Hertfordshire-wide maths competition, where 150 schools took part
The final for the 2018 Herts for Learning maths challenge for Year 5 students was held at the Hertfordshire Development Centre in Stevenage.
Four boys from Hartsfield took the top spot, with Letchworth’s Lordship Farm Primary School team coming in second place and The William Ransom Primary School in Hitchin taking third prize.
Hartsfield headteacher Philippa Smith said: “The boys were a credit to their parents and to our school.
“They behaved impeccably in the stressful conditions they faced. To end up beating 149 other schools from across the county was quite an achievement and one of which I am immensely proud!”
David Cook from HfL said: “It was great to see teams persevere and work together to find the answer. All schools should be very proud of their efforts.”
