It all adds up for Wellington

A team of four year-10 pupils from Wellington School came out on top in a Maths Feast competition at the Met Office in Exeter

Twenty schools sent teams, but the winning combination of Joey Lam, Edward Peachey, Marco Leong and Anton Grishechkin answered a range of questions aimed at stretching them beyond the mathematics they meet in GCSEs. There were six rounds and the Wellington School team won four of these through consistent application of their maths knowledge. They then had a tour of the building, including seeing the first parts of the new £97 million super-computer. The Maths Feast was run by the Further Mathematics Support Programme and the Wellington team ended up with 135 points out of 167 – the highest score of the day from 20 schools.

A Wellington pupil has also qualified for the National Triathlon Championships.
