Maths Challenge

Twice a year Christ's Hospital hosts a Maths Challenge for 30 to 40 local Primary and Prep Schools. Each school enters teams who take part in various puzzling and problem solving challenges. Prizes are awarded at the end of the challenge and every pupil gets a certificate of participation. All visitors then join us for tea and refreshments at the end of the challenge 


To develop problem solving skills and encourage a love of maths. Pupils will also work as a team, developing their communication skills.
