The Basildon Academies


The UKMT Maths Team Challenge Regional Final for Essex was a very exciting day for a group of our Lower Academy Mathematicians

Harry James, Ioana Listrat, Kirsty Masser and Jacob Leagas travelled to Bancrofts School in Woodford Green to take part in maths based challenges. 

The students competed in 4  rounds, namely; The Group Challenge, The Cross Number, The Shuttle and The Relay, which also required our team to get physical and race against time! 

Competing against 28 other schools around the county, our team secured 20th position. 

“This was the students first experience in the Team Challenge and they really did their best and brought it to the table! We are proud of our achievement as a team and look forward to giving it another go next year. We know that we will do even better next time around.” Miss Isaacs

“This was a great experience. It was fun to interact with students from other schools and an honour to represent the Academies. The questions were really challenging and needed a great deal of thought.” Kirsty Masser - Year 9

“Taking part was very helpful and I will definitely go again.” Ioana Listrat - Year 9
