Every year Godolphin and Latymer hosts the Primary Maths Challenge and invites local state primary schools to take part. Schools enter teams a number of teams each consisting of four Year 5 pupils who take part in various problem-solving activities including: Group Round; Cross Number; Shuttle; and ending with a Relay round where the teams literally race against the clock - and each other - to solve problems. Certificates are awarded to the teams taking part.
