Gresham's students won the regional heat of the UK Maths Senior Team Challenge which took place at City College Norwich on Wednesday 23 November. The team competition for students in years 11, 12 and 13 tests mathematical, communication and teamwork skills, and aims to promote the study of maths at Sixth Form and beyond.

The four Gresham's students tackled three gruelling rounds of mathematical problems and equations and managed to see off competitors from sixteen independent and state schools from East Anglia to make it to the national final, which will take place in London in February.

Reflecting on the victory, Deputy Head (Academic) David Miles said 'The team performed outstandingly well, making only three errors throughout the three hour competition. They gained a total of 163 out of 176 points, outperforming the second place team by 46 points. We wish the team well in the National Final.'
