Each week, the Maths department shares a puzzle that boys can attempt to test their problem solving skills. These may be number mysteries, shape brainteasers or worded challenges designed to get boys thinking about maths in different ways to what they are used to. 

All boys have access to these puzzles via the school VLE, with answers being able to be submitted between 9am on Monday and 3pm on Friday.

Every boy who enters gets achievement points, with one correct entrant each week being drawn at random to win a prize from the department. 

Starting on Friday 1st October, all boys are invited to the Maths Puzzle Club in Mr Lawton’s room every Friday at 3pm. Here, boys will look at methods to solve the puzzles, check their answers, pick out that week’s winner and enjoy some drinks and biscuits at the same time. We hope to see many boys there on Friday!
