As a reward for pupils’ outstanding achievements in maths, they were whisked away to London for a fun – but educational – day out.

A group of 24 students across Years 1-9 achieved the gold award in the passport maths programme at West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s, and were treated to a trip to the National History Museum in the capital.

Julie Swatton, from the school, said: “Students received a surprise welcome as they entered the museum with a massive dinosaur staring at them. They were reassured when we discovered it was a vegetarian!”

The day ended with a visit to the Charles Darwin Centre.
Ms Swatton added: “Our students were a credit to themselves and the academy and returned home armed with a vast array of photographs to remind them of their adventure.”
