Students Jack, James, Leo and Lewis took part in the national competition alongside schools from across the North West.

The competition combined mathematical, communication and teamwork skills and provided an opportunity for students to express and develop their enjoyment of the subject.

There were several rounds of mathematical problems to solve, based around GCSE and A Level maths, including team and relay challenges.

Leo said:

“It was a great opportunity and a challenge to solve A level maths questions.  I’d like to study maths at Manchester University in the future.”

James added:

“All the questions were challenging and made you think really hard; it was enjoyable.”

The students also toured the university and learnt more about education and career routes in maths.
