Our key stage 3 students recently took part in the UK Maths Trust Junior Challenge. The National competition enabled our students to compete alongside some of the most able Mathematicians in the UK.

Mr Handley, Assistant Head of Mathematics said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for our younger students to experience a challenge outside of the norm, with Mathematics in a slightly less familiar context. This has certainly helped foster our students’ resilience and adaptability”.

Our students performed extremely well, achieving prizes in the Gold, Silver and Bronze Categories. Across years 7 and 8, we had a very pleasing 72 prizes, as follows:

Year 8: 6 Gold, 10 Silver 20 Bronze

Year 7: 3 Gold, 15 Silver and 18 Bronze
