Year Seven mathematicians rock it out at national event

Three Year Seven students were invited to represent Gad’s at the ‘Rock Wrangle’, a times tables competition in London.

The contest sees 50 schools take part in a series of heats and head-to-head ‘times tables offs’.

Shell H’s Holly Taylor and Isabelle Benson teamed-up with Charles Welch of Shell B to compete against 150 other school children from around the UK.

Maths teacher Mrs Ostrehan said:  “Our students had a great day and were really inspired by the vibrant surroundings and buzzing atmosphere, all helping celebrate a love of learning maths.

“We may not have won on this occasion but the organisers made sure every contender realised their mathematical potential – and of course got to dress-up in a crazy rockstar outfit.”
