Maths whizz kids from Broadland High School were named as one of the top teams in the country after competing in the Regional Finals of the Student Investor Stock Market Challenge.

The team of four Year 10 boys represented the school at the regional stage of the competition in Birmingham, competing against students from across the country including some studying business at sixth forms.

And after a hard fought battle, the Broadland boys came sixth regionally and achieved the 17th highest score nationally – the only Norfolk school to be in the top 20.

Over 6000 teams entered the competition last year and because the Broadland team, named Anything2, finished in 25th place they were put forward to the regional finals where they were quizzed on a range of financial topics.

Head of Broadland’s Mathematics department, Mr Toby Sallis said:  “I was really proud of the efforts our pupils made and their success in competing against sixth formers.  It was a valuable educational experience which we all enjoyed.  Next year we intend to win!”

The team members were: Harry Foreman, Barnaby Buckley, Henry Hallatt and Cameron Bird.
