Primary's Maths Success

Primary Get Mathematically Challenged


This term at Primary the students have been enjoying the extra challenges and deciphering mathematical problems and puzzles thrown their way. Students in Y4 and Y5 represented the Academy at two different Maths competitions within Bristol, and all the students should feel very proud with their achievements.


Y4 students selected were Felix , Alfie , Sam and Lacey and they went to Red Maids School on Tuesday 17th January for a Bristol Maths competition.

The Y4 students competed against 24 schools from across Bristol and finished overall in 10th place. Miss Charlotte Hamill, who teaches the students said:  'The students were fantastic, a true credit to the Academy.'
