First at the feast!

A QE team of four Year 10 boys has won a regional Mathematics competition, beating off challenges from other leading schools.

Kiran Aberdeen, Jahn Bautista, Sehj Khanna and Mudit Tulsianey were all selected to take part in the Maths Feast London event, which took place at Highgate School. The competition involves a number of rounds featuring problem-solving scenarios that require participants to combine mathematical, communication and teamwork skills.

Scoring 72 points out of a possible 85, the QE team emerged as winners against 11 competitors who included their hosts and The Henrietta Barnett School. Assistant Head of Mathematics and organiser Wendy Fung congratulated the winning four.

The nationwide Maths Feast competition is run by the Further Mathematics Support Programme, a Government-funded initiative supported by the Department for Education. Its format changes slightly every year to keep the various rounds interesting and exciting. Participants are encouraged to take the materials back to their schools and run the rounds with their classmates.
