Maths Challenges

Photo STMC 640wWe have recently received results from the UKMT Senior Individual Maths Challenge. We are delighted to have been awarded 7 Bronze, 5 Silver and 6 Gold awards. From this group, 4 pupils have been invited to participate in the Kangaroo follow on round, and for the first time at this Senior level, two pupils have been invited to sit the Olympiad paper. This is very prestigious as it puts them in the top 1000 or so pupils (usually sixth formers) entered in the competition.

Also, 4 pupils trained hard and last week went along to the Senior Team Maths Challenge in the Playfair Library of Edinburgh University. The girls performed very well and were leading for two of the rounds. They were narrowly pipped over the final few questions, but as this is a young team, they look forward to even greater things next year.
