After weeks of hard work and tough mathematical training, teams from Nascot Wood Junior School and Denmark Road High School have been crowned the winners of the Explore Learning Mathematicians’ Awards.

In the primary school competition, Millie, Moez, Robert and Neha from Nascot Wood in Watford were crowned champions. Meanwhile in the secondary school contest, Liz, Sarah, Grace and Khadeeja from Denmark Road High School were victorious.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, our annual competition is organised in partnership with NRICH at the University of Cambridge with the main aim of inspiring children across the UK to see the fun that maths can bring, push themselves to reach their full potential and to work as a team.

Bobby Seagull, mathematician, teacher and competition ambassador, said:

“The enthusiasm on display from the teams of children taking part was really inspiring. The children told us why maths matters to them and the range of responses showed a great awareness of the value the subject has in everyday life, from paying taxes to making engineering and physics possible.
