School team win the Regional Senior Team Mathematics Challenge

A team from the school attended the regional final of the Senior Team Mathematics Challenge at the University of Derby last week.  Organised jointly by the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme and the UK Mathematics Trust, the aim of the competition is to provide a stimulating and enjoyable challenge for 16-19 year old mathematics students by focusing on Problem-solving, teamwork and communication skills.  Fifteen teams of the best mathematics students from local schools and colleges tackled a series of demanding mathematical challenges over three hours, and we are both delighted and proud to announce that the Belper School team won!

The team now progresses to the national final in London on 4 February 2020.  We wish them continued success.
