Terms and Conditions

By entering the NSPCC Rocks competition, it will be assumed that you have read these terms and conditions and that you accept them for and on behalf of your school.

  • This competition will run from 07:00 BST to 19:00 BST on Friday 7th May 2021 (the "Competition Period").
  • The competition is open to any school (primary, secondary or all-through schools) located in UK only who has either an active school subscription or an active school trial to Times Tables Rock Stars on ttrockstars.com.
  • To enter your school in the competition, please login to your Times Tables Rock Stars account and head to Tournaments > NSPCC Rocks. Please accept the invitation and choose the Maths Classes that you would like to participate in the competition. Please note that Pastoral Classes cannot participate, only Maths Classes can participate.
  • You MUST unenroll any classes you don't want to participate BEFORE the competition starts. Once the competition starts, you cannot change which classes are enrolled or unenrolled.

  • The winners of the class competition are the ones with the highest average number of correct answers per pupil who played on Times Tables Rock Stars during the Competition Period.
  • To calculate the average, our algorithm divides by the number of pupils who take part during the Competition Period. There needs to be a minimum of 5 pupils in the class who take part. If only 1, 2, 3, or 4 pupils from a class play during the competition then our algorithm will still divide by 5 for the purpose of the average to simulate there being 5 players in the class.
  • Similarly, to calculate the school's average, our algorithm divides by the number of pupils who take part during the Competition Period but will divide by 5 as a minimum.
  • Answers given correctly by pupils on any game mode within Times Tables Rock Stars count towards the total scores (i.e. to include questions answered in Gig, Garage, Jamming, Studio, Arena, Festival and Soundcheck game modes). This ensures that pupils of all ages and levels can take part.
  • Schools or classes deemed by Maths Circle to be taking measures that give them an unfair advantage may be removed from the competition.

a. top 3 performing pupils within each school - top 3 pupils at each school with the highest number of correct answers given during the Competition Period;
b. top 3 performing classes within each school - top 3 classes at each school with the highest number of correct answers given on average per pupil who played during the Competition Period; and
