Mathematics adds up to success

Maths Challenge Participants

Every year Stockport Grammar Senior School hosts an exciting maths challenge for the Year 6 pupils from the Junior School to test their mathematical knowledge in a series of fun quizzes.

This year’s Junior School Maths challenge was won by Vernon House with 384 points as they saw off the challenge of Arden (2nd), Warren (3rd) and Nicholson (4th) Houses.

Maths Challenge

There were 3 rounds: the first was a series of mathematical problems for the children to solve in their groups of four. The second round was called the ‘group relay’ where each question was reliant on the previous question’s answer. The final round required the teams to work in twos, relaying questions back and forth against the clock.
