The event was organised by Mr Joseph Pape, Maths Teachers at the Academy.  Mr Pape comments: Once again this was a fantastic event with so many young people joining together to share their enthusiasm and love of Maths. I was very impressed with the calibre of pupils, it was a very close competition throughout the day!  Thank you to all the schools who joined us and well done to Folkestone Primary Academy.”

All pupils went away with a goody bag and certificate.
