Twenty of our most gifted and talented mathematicians from Years 12 and 13 recently took part in UKMT’s Senior Maths Challenge. The Challenge is a national competition whereby approximately 4,000 schools and colleges in the UK take part each year. The 1.5-hour paper contains highly challenging multiple-choice questions that are designed to stimulate mathematical problem solving.

The Maths Department are pleased to report an excellent set of results this year; pupils are awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze certificates if they score above the respective thresholds- 60% of participants receive certificates nationally. Our headlines are as follows:-
