U11 Maths Quiz

For the second year in a row, Birkdale Senior School hosted an U11 Maths Quiz, welcoming teams from local Primary Schools and Birkdale Prep School.

There were 6 teams in all competing for the Trophy. Mr Roach, Head of Maths was Quizmaster and tested the competitors breadth of mathematical knowledge with 20 fiendish questions. Birkdale Prep School entered two teams, with one performing exceptionally to score 14/20 and take home the trophy. It was however a closely fought contest and everyone enjoyed the morning enormously. We were also delighted to welcome so many parents who came along to support the teams.

Many congratulations go to Matthew Morris, Aamir Petkar, Matty Buchanan, Madoc Hawker, Thomas Chellam and Arush Bhattacharyya on displaying some amazing mathematical talent. The boys will also enter the Sheffield Hallam University Pop Maths Quiz in March.
