Teams from schools from all over the Valley came to BRGS to take part in the annual Maths Challenge. The theme for this year's challenge was Space. There were 10 tasks to be completed in the 3 hours available so teams were against each other and the clock.

Mrs. Kennedy (Head of Year 7 and Maths Challenge organiser) said that this year saw more teams complete the challenge within the time than ever before, so competition for the cup (right) was fierce.

By the end of the morning there was a winner though: Newchurch County Primary School who will take the cup back with them to Dark Lane.
