Numeracy Day at the Races

14 Year 9 students visited Lingfield Racecourse on Wednesday 22nd January for a Numeracy Day run by ‘Racing to School’. Students were treated to a behind the scenes look at the preparations made by a racecourse on a race day – applying their mathematical skills in the parade ring and weighing room where they met Frankie Detori!

Students were taught how to read a racecard and watched the first two races; the racecourse asked them to present the prize to the second race winner too!
