The winners were Ravenor Primary in Greenway Gardens, Greenford, for their team work, systematic working and mathematical thinking.

The other teams competing at Explore Learning Ealing were from Oldfield Primary School in Oldfield Lane, Greenford, and Mount Carmel RC Primary School in Little Ealing Lane, Ealing.
