National Maths Challenge Success

A few weeks ago, selected students from Y7 & 8 were invited to take part in the UK Junior Maths Challenge, ran by Leeds University.  Students couldn’t really prepare for the challenge as the questions asked required out of the box thinking and logical reasoning. The students however proved how good their maths skills were with six of our students gaining an award for their fantastic efforts.

We are delighted and proud of all the students who took part, the students who received awards included:

Bronze Certificate (Top 20% nationally): Ellie Y8, Luke Y8, Ashley Y8 and Daniel Y7.

Silver Certificate (Top 10% nationally): Jacob Y7

Gold Certificate (Top 6% nationally): Hannah Y8 – also qualifies for the next level of the national challenge! This means that Hannah was in the top 1% nationally – what an amazing achievement!
