Record-breaking Maths Result

Five of our pupils have been awarded medals in the prestigious Primary Maths Challenge 2019.

We're celebrating a record-breaking Maths result after five pupils were awarded medals in the prestigious Primary Maths Challenge 2019.

The Primary Maths Challenge, run by the Mathematical Association, is aimed at children in Years 5 and 6 across the whole country. It is designed to make pupils think outside the box and encourages reasoning skills through solving problems.

This year around 67,000 children took part in the challenge and, nationwide, the percentage of entrants who received a medal was 2%.

At Russell House, 11% of pupils who entered the first round made it through to the final, and all achieved a medal! Three received Silver and two were awarded Bronze medals. It's a record result for Russell House in the Maths Challenge.
