Well done to our Year 7 pupils who represented Highfield at the North West Regional Final of the UKMT Junior Maths Team Challenge recently.

AKS Lytham hosted the event which aims to find the region’s highest achievers in mathematical dexterity, teamwork and communication.

The event comprised of four highly competitive 45 minute rounds, each testing the pupils’ understanding of mathematical problems, memory skills and logic. At the end of the competition Vicki Chan, Sophie Mellor, Adam Robinson and Tom Dunmore lead Highfield Leadership Academy to 10th place out of 26 participating schools.

All four pupils were exemplary in their attitude and commitment, thoroughly relishing the opportunity to represent the Academy at such a prestigious event. Well done to them all!
