A jubilant team from Archbishop Temple CE High School and Technology College are top of the class when it comes to maths.
They beat eight other teams of young people from schools across the County to take the honours in this year's Lancashire Maths Challenge Final at the Woodlands Centre Chorley, on Wednesday 23rd June.
The competition, sponsored by Lancashire County Developments Ltd, (LCDL), originally included all 88 secondary schools in Lancashire, with the nine finalists winning their district heats.
The teams were well supported by parents, teachers and other spectators at the exciting and close fought final. This year's competition has been based on an Olympic theme and also included a special business orientated question that carried a separate prize.
The final results were
First - Archbishop Temple CE High School & Technology College, Preston (trophy and £500 voucher for IT equipment for the school)
Second - Lancaster Girls' Grammar School (£300 voucher for It equipment)
Third - Balshaw's CE High School, Leyland (£100 voucher for IT equipment)
The special business question carried an extra £100 prize for the winning school and was claimed by Lancaster Girls Grammar School.
County Councillor Niki Penney, Chairman of LCDL, said:
"This competition is all about getting young people to enjoy maths and to work together as a team.
"Everyone who took part in this exciting final deserves our congratulations, the young people involved are all winners. I am confident they will go on to become a new generation of entrepreneurs, engineers and employees in the Red Rose County, fulfilling our aim to make Lancashire a place where people can work and prosper."
