Categories: East Sheen,East Sheen News


Congratulations to Richmond Park Academy at the Count on Us Secondary Challenge!

Years 8 & 9 pupils – Megan Barnes, Grace Armitage, Agnes Eriksson, Iwan Crump and Harshitha Mutyala – from Richmond Park Academy took part in The Count on Us Secondary Challenge, a London-wide maths challenge for the Mayor’s Fund for London in partnership with the Jack Petchey Foundation, on Friday 12 May and carried all before them. Not only did they win their heat against 5 other schools at Hammersmith Academy but they also secured the best score out of 60 participating schools so far!

They now move on to the semifinals in City Hall. Well done and good luck!

The Count on Us Secondary Challenge is an event for Years 8 and 9 pupils and features a combination of mental arithmetic and problem-solving tasks presenting a genuine challenge.


RPA’s successful team has been practising with maths teacher, Mr Chmielinski, every Tuesday and Thursday for a month. He said:
I am immensely proud of the 5 students that took part in this challenge. To get top marks out of 60 schools and reach the semi-finals of the competition is a fantastic achievement.
