Students from Year 7 and Year 8 were entered into the UKMT Junior Mathematical Challenge.
We are extremely proud of the students who entered the UKMT Junior Mathematical Challenge. The UKMT Junior Mathematical Challenge aims to stimulate mathematical problem solving. It was aimed at students in Year 8 or below and is the UK's most popular mathematics competition with over 300 000 students taking part each year.
The average mark for the country was 45 and one of our students, Theo Walsh got a score of 76! He also received the award for 'Best in Year' for Year 7 and 'Best in School' along with Amy Ellison who also received 'Best in Year' for Year 8. All students in the picture below received a score of 54+. Today Mrs Bootman and Mr Taylor handed out Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates to the successful students. If they received Gold they were in the top 7%, Silver they were in the top 20% and Bronze the top 40% of students entered.
