Maths prodigy Mikhail Ali, a pupil at the Froebelian School in Horsforth, has once again shown his amazing ability with numbers.
Mikhail, aged 8 and currently in Year 3, joined all the children in Year 6 to participate in the national Primary Mathematics Challenge. Across the UK over 3000 children participated and Mikhail reached the mega-final where he was awarded a bronze standard for his incredible achievement.
Two of the Year 6 pupils at Froebelian also reached the mega-final where Miles Gilleard was awarded bronze and Emma Peacock a silver certificate.
Headmaster John Tranmer praised the children for their success, “I am delighted that our pupils achieved so well and I congratulate Emma, Miles and Mikhail on their excellent results. Mikhail is part of our Gifted and Talented programme and it is a great pleasure to see him make exceptional progress.”
The Froebelian School is a thriving independent school for 190 boys and girls aged 3 to 11 years. We aim to provide children with a happy learning environment, one where they are challenged and supported to achieve personal excellence. The school is large enough to offer first-class teaching and facilities but small enough to ensure that every child is part of our extended family.
Our goal of nurturing children to become rounded individuals, fulfilling their full potential is realised through a wide curriculum. Academic success is at the heart of the school and is complemented by plenty of sport, music, art and drama. There is a full programme of extra-curricular activities, including opportunities for outdoor pursuits.
Situated in Horsforth, close to the Leeds ring-road, the school is easily accessible from most areas close to Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate. The site is very secure with a wooded area offering delightful views over the Aire valley.
The school is an educational charity where ultimate responsibility rests with a School Council (governors).
The day-to-day running of the school is delegated to the Headmaster; supported by a senior management team.
