Last term 130 year 7 and 8 mathematicians sat the UKMT Junior Maths Challenge. The Junior Mathematical Challenge is a 60-minute, multiple-choice challenge sat by students across the country. It encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve problems. It provides students with the opportunity to solve interesting problems and questions outside of their usual maths lessons.
All students who sat the challenge did exceptionally well and it was evident that students were trying their hardest to work through the problems. Congratulations and well done to everyone who took part.
Students who achieved certain scores were awarded certificates for their efforts and as a school we achieved 1 gold, 7 silver and 27 bronze certificates. This is an amazing achievement and all students who received a certificate should be very proud of themselves. A particular well done to Anna A in year 7 who achieved best in year and Macy R in year 8 who achieved best in school.
