VLT Maths Challenge

On Wednesday 19th October, 2022, Ruislip High School hosted the Vanguard Learning Trust’s Maths Challenge.

An afternoon full of maths themed activities and challenges, the event saw students from every school in the VLT take part, from Ryefield Primary School to Vyners Secondary School. This annual event has taken place virtually for the last few years, so it was wonderful to see the students able to meet face to face for this year’s event. 

The students thoroughly enjoyed the event with Dragos, Year 7, stating: “The day was interesting and the concepts of the questions were fun.”

Another student who enjoyed the day was Jade, Year 7, who told us: “It was a great day for socialising and meeting new people from different schools. It was great fun!”

After a tough afternoon, Vyners were crowned the winners, holding on to their title for another year. Well done to all of the students who participated in the day and thank you to all of the staff from across the trust who supported the event.

Mr Ladhani, Director of Maths, who was responsible for the organisation of the event said: “It was great to finally have this event take place in person. Originally, the day was planned for March 2020, just a week before all schools closed, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”  

“It was a joy to see the enthusiasm of all of the participants, especially when they were doing the Maths trail. Congratulations to our winners and thank you to all staff and student volunteers involved.”
