Year 10 Maths Feast



Maths Feast is a fun educational challenge for Year 10 students which tests problem-solving and teamwork skills. Teams of four students will test their maths skills with our all-you-can-eat feast of problems!

There are several rounds requiring different skills and strategies for success. Each event takes between two and three hours, and awards will be given for good teamwork and for the winning team of each round.


  • Improve problem-solving skills using recreational maths
  • Improve teamwork and communication skills

Who will benefit from attending?

Maths Feast is open to all Year 10 students who want to improve their mathematical and teamwork skills.


What's on the menu? Well, that would be telling...

We change the format and content of Maths Feast every year to keep the challenge exciting. However, we promise that content will be familiar or accessible to most Year 10s and could include both recreational and more traditional maths problems.

Practice resources and materials from previous Maths Feasts are available here.

Materials and Equipment

Calculators and equipment such as rulers and protractors are not permitted - this competition is based on your brain power alone!

Other Information

There are no heats or finals, so participants can take materials back to their schools and use them to enrich learning in the classroom.

Due to COVID-19, the AMSP is delivering events differently. Many professional development and student support events that are usually face-to-face have been adapted to be delivered online. We are currently planning to run these face-to-face Maths Feast events in the spring term. However, we are monitoring the situation and if guidelines change, the event may need to be cancelled. Please do apply for the Maths Feast, we will give you as much notice as possible in the event of a cancellation and let you know of any online alternatives that are arranged.

If your school is unable to attend a face-to-face or live online Maths Feast this year, please check out our DIY Maths Feast


Year 10 students only, organised into groups of four. Each team must be accompanied by a teacher or teaching assistant. Schools entering multiple teams must bring one responsible adult per team; however, in the case of the additional teams, this could be sixth former.

Due to our funding arrangements with the DfE, priority will be given to applications from state-funded schools in England. Applications will open to Independent schools in January 2022.
Please note: the Priority Area subsidy only applies if the event is held as a face to face event and not online.
