National Young Mathematician Champions 2017

Vincent, Daisy, Joel and Brooke worked through a particularly complicated problem, demonstrating brilliant team work and perseverance skills. They challenged each other well throughout the process and presented their findings confidently.

The children won lots of amazing goodies, including a class trip to Kidzania and trophies to help remember this achievement for the rest of their lives.

We are so proud of how well they represented Ladbrooke and for beating 746 schools across the country to put our school on the map.

Look out for the article in First News, coming soon.


Massive congratulations are in order to the four year 6 pupils who have gone through to the final of the National Young Mathematicians Award 2017.

After two, particularly challening, rounds of complex problems, the children are one of only five groups who will be competing in the final round at Cambridge University on Wednesday 13th December.

Our children are one group from about five hundred, across the country, who originally took part in the competition and so it is trully amazing what they have achieved. We are all so very proud of them and wish them every luck for the final.


On Thursday 21st September Year 5 & 6 held a cake sale and raised a fantastic £219.10. Well done to everyone who took part and for everyone who came along and bought cakes.

On Friday 17th November we held a non uniform day to raise money for Children in Need. We raised a fantastic £489.00!.

On Friday 6th October, the circus returned to Ladbrooke. Amid huge excitement, the children watched as the circus tent was put up.  As the children left the school, there was a buzz about what acts were going to be seen on the night.
