Schools across Slough and Maidenhead have battled it out in the regional finals of the National Young Mathematicians' Awards competition.

It all took place at Explore Learning Tuition Centre's headquarters at Providence Place, Maidenhead.

The proud winners out of the six competitors were pupils from Holy Trinity School in School Lane, Cookham.

They were Jack Pain, Lily Gibson, Thomas Moorhouse and Sadie Huddleston.

They beat Lent Rise School in Burnham, Maidenhead's Oldfield, St Edmund Campion and St Mary's Church of England schools and Upton House School in St Leonard's Road, Windsor.

The annual event, organised by Explore Learning and the NRICH Project at the University of Cambridge, is open to teams of four children from primary schools across the UK. This year's was the most popular year yet with over 700 schools competing and 100 regional winners.

Charlotte Gater, head of curriculum at Explore Learning says: “The competition really steps up a gear at this stage, and the teams who have made it this far should be very proud indeed."

Only the top five schools from across the country made it through to the national final. But Holy Trinity pupils have good cause to be proud of their achievement in proving the best young mathematicians in Slough and the Royal Borough.
