The Basildon Academies

Students compete in Maths Challenge

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 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.M - Year 9

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