Senior Team maths Challenge at Keele University Wednesday 18th November 2015

This year’s team consisted of Mark Cooper and Rob Dennison from year 13 and Dan Chadfield and Emelia Hilton from year 12 sporting very fetching and admired Westwood t-shirts. It was another successful outing with the team placing 6th place out of 15 teams. The competition involved 3 rounds including a cross number, group problem solving and team relay. The team performed very well in the first two rounds but a difficult relay round proved to be their downfall. The team really enjoyed the evening and the year 12’s are looking forward to next year’s event.
