Congratulations to Chard School’s team of 4 mathematicians who took part in the Wellington School Maths Challenge on Saturday, competing against nearly 50 other schools from the South West. They put in a fantastic performance, finishing 4th overall with 15 points – this was just 2 points behind the winning team in what was an incredibly tight top 5!

Mrs Pielesz, Head of Maths, said “In the last two years we have excelled in this competition, especially for such a small school, finishing in the top 5 both times. I am so proud of our team who showed real resilience and strength in their approach to some very tough maths problems. To be so close to winning shows how far they have come over the last year. I can’t wait to see what we can achieve in our next competition at Millfield School in May!”

Well done to our superstar team of mathematicians!
