Wrekin College Maths Challenge 2019

The competition, typically entered by over seventy teams from across the Midlands, has seen West House finish no lower than 4th place since 2015 and this year hopes were high, once again.

A series of problem solving activities requiring cooperative thinking awaited the mathematicians upon their arrival in leafy Shropshire and, as one has come to expect of West House boys, the team approached the tasks with gusto. While the competition remained close throughout, the pair of Jack Moysey and Akhbar Butt finished in a highly creditable 5th position out of 78 pairs. With Ming Jiang and Ethan Chu finishing in 1st place, the school secured first position overall and the boys returned under the weight of books, pencils, sharpeners, badges and certificates.

All bodes well for the Mathematical Association Primary Maths Challenge during the Spring Term and, with Ming and Ethan having recently been offered academic scholarships to King Edward’s School, confidence is high.
