WinAtSchool is a fun online competition in mathematics and statistics for Year 10 and 11 pupils at all UK secondary schools.

Stage 1 of the competition was launched In September 2012, and involves an online quiz consisting of multiple choice questions on statistics and related mathematics based on the Key Stage 4 Mathematics Curriculum. This is a taster, and is not part of the competition.

Stage 2 will take place during the 6-8 week window between February half term and Easter 2013 during school hours. The online stage 2 questions will also be multiple choice, but will be based on the top end of KS4 and beyond.

Competition finalists will be selected from the 12 top scoring UK schools at stage 2, with a team of four pupils from each school being invited to attend the live final in London in June 2013. The winning school will receive a prize for £2,500 with second and third prizes of £1,000 and £500, respectively.
