MATHS-BASED Olympic events were held at King Alfred School in Burnham Road, Highbridge, for year seven and eight students.
Pupils had their mental maths and problem solving skills challenged in a variety of events ranging from archery and weightlifting to sprints and a relay.
Maths teacher, Shaun Pavey, said: “All students have been challenged by showing them that maths can be used in a variety of ways beyond the classroom.
“They have also improved other skills such as working as part of a team.”
Winning students also took part in a closing ceremony and scooped up some gold medals.
