In the first House event of the new academic year, 14 teams of four pupils faced three rounds of tough mathematics, battling it out for the coveted title of House Maths Champions. Although the current situation meant that teams were divided across several classrooms, the atmosphere was no less electric. The first round put to these pupils was a staple of maths competitions - a fiendish crossnumber, where the teams had to solve mathematical clues to fill in a crossword grid. After that came the Kahoot round, which saw School House take the top spot, closely followed by New and Leconfield.
With all still to play for, the teams moved on to the relay round, where the answer to each question depended on the answers to the previous questions. Although having been bested in the Kahoot, this round saw the Leconfield Upper Sixth team of Robert, Oggy, Dylan and Kieran (pictured above) slip ahead of School House to defend their title, taking their third House Maths Challenge victory in a row with a score of 23/30. Well done to all pupils who took part in the competition.
