Shirley Manor Primary Academy and Frizinghall Primary enjoy Maths success

Both schools are delighted after their pupils excelled in a national maths competition.

Shirley Manor Primary Academy and Frizinghall Primary School have been celebrating their success in the recent Sumdog UK National Maths Contest.

Class 6 from Shirley Manor came second in the overall contest held earlier this term, while two pupils from Frizinghall Primary were awarded second and third place nationally for the highest scoring pupils.

Maureen Neill, Headteacher at Shirley Manor Primary Academy, said her school is extremely proud of all the children who took part in the contest which "really grabbed their imaginations and provided the opportunity to improve their mathematical skills”. Shaun Casey, Chair of Governors at the school, pointed out that the competition has been a great way of sparking the children's imagination and enthusiasm.

Pauline Chilvers, Headteacher at Frizinghall Primary, was delighted by the fact that two of her school's children finished in second and third place nationally. She said a particularly pleasing aspect of it was that the children had enjoyed their learning while achieving so highly.

Councillor Ralph Berry, Bradford Council's Executive Member for Children's Services, praised the achievements and enthusiasm of the pupils who took part.
