UKMT Maths team challenge

On the 22nd of March the regional finals of the UKMT Maths team challenge took place at Pimlico academy.  The Challenge is a competition that gives students the opportunity to tackle a variety of engaging mathematical activities while developing teamwork and communication skills. The Enfield Grammar team was made up from  Adam Demou, Matthew Parker, Lewis Pummell and James Purnell.  The team performed admirably, gaining an impressive 30% increase in ranking compared to the previous year (even more impressively, the team had worked out this percentage increase for themselves).  They enjoyed themselves immensely and the whole team would like to take part again as they are sure they can do even better.

RIBI Young Chef Competition Success!

The winners of the School Heat, Josh Gilmore, of form 8U and Luc Field, of form 7F attended the next round of the cooking competition at Redbridge College recently.

 The judges chose to award Luc 2nd place. One of the judges, Lynden Davies, a professional chef who has cooked at No10 Downing Street, several premier league football clubs and Robbie Williams amongst others, declared Luc’s tandoori Pilaff dish ‘the tastiest main course of the day, superb’.

Well done to both boys for a fantastic achievement.
