Your MAT-wide contest from Sumdog

Sumdog's bespoke maths contests for multi-academy trusts are a great opportunity to engage your pupils and foster a sense of community.

What is a Sumdog contest?

Sumdog's trust-wide maths contests are a great way to motivate your pupils as they compete against other classes and schools across your MAT.

During the contest week, pupils answer up to 1000 maths questions whilst playing Sumdog's fun games. These questions are personalised and scores are based on accuracy, so everyone competes at their own level - and any class can win!

Watch our video to see Cat Stone, Primary Lead Practitioner for Maths at L.E.A.D. Academy Trust, share how the contest worked for them.
