Year 9 Maths Picnic



Maths Picnic is a fun educational challenge for Year 9 students which tests problem-solving and teamwork skills. Teams of three students will test their maths skills with our all-you-can-eat picnic of problems!

Who will benefit from attending?

Maths Picnic is open to all Year 9 students who want to improve their mathematical and teamwork skills.


There are several rounds requiring different skills and strategies for success. Each event takes about two hours, and awards will be given for good teamwork and for the winning team of each round.

Practice resources and materials from previous Maths Feasts are available here.

Materials and Equipment

Calculators and equipment such as rulers and protractors are not permitted - this competition is based on your brain power alone!

However, students need to bring something to write with.

Other Information

There are no heats or finals, so participants can take materials back to their schools and use them to enrich learning in the classroom.


Year 9 students only, organised into teams of three. Each pair of teams must be accompanied by a teacher or teaching assistant. Schools entering multiple teams must bring a ratio of one responsible adult per two teams, however for additional teams this could be a sixth former.
