A regional maths challenge hosted in Stevenage has been hailed as a success after 16 teams from schools across Herts got their thinking caps on.
Barnwell School provided the venue for a competition which saw more than 60 Year 8 pupils take part in a series of maths-based challenges.
The event was backed by Herts for Learning – a not-for-profit company which provides school improvement services – and will be followed up with a national competition.
Alongside a quartet of young mathematicians from Barnwell, students from Princess Helena College in Preston and The Priory School in Hitchin were among those who took part.
Afterwards, Barnwell deputy head Paul Barnett said: “It was a fantastic way of promoting analytical and mathematical thinking and it’s also about communication, team work and problem solving.
