During the final week of January, GDST Junior Schools took part in an exciting Maths competition. The GDST Maths Junior Rock Out 2021 was open to Years 4, 5 and 6 via an online platform. The friendly competition was designed to be engaging while improving the girls’ arithmetic. Schools Minister Nick Gibb said: “You will see children delighted with the sense of achievement which comes from mastering mathematical knowledge.”

Each correct answer to a multiplication or division question earned the girls a point for their class and The Times Tables Rock Stars platform calculated the class average. We were thrilled to see NHSG occupying top spots in the league table throughout the competition and they finished in an impressive 5th place out of all GDST schools. Laila Ahmad, Year 6, achieved an amazing individual performance of 2nd place out of every girl involved! 6J gave the best overall performance out of the six KS3 form groups involved.

Well done girls, we are so proud of our NHSG Maths maestros!
