DURRINGTON Middle School pupils came out on top in an inter-school challenge day, where seven Worthing schools competed against each other in an academic competition.

Durrington Middle School, English Martyrs Primary School, The Vale Middle School, Downsbrook Middle School, Orchards Middle School and West Park School met at Thomas A’Becket Middle School to compete in the third annual gifted and talented pupil inter-school challenge day.

Each school entered a team of six children, who competed against the other teams in a variety of rounds, including anagrams, maths countdown, story writing, music composition, and design and construction.

Points earned from each round were counted up at the end of the day, which saw last year’s winners, English Martyrs Primary, and Durrington Middle come out on top with the same number of points.

To decide the winner, a tie-breaking round of Countdown was played, which saw Durrington Middle School pupils triumph.

Each child was presented with a medal and certificate, and the team was also awarded two trophies.
