On Thursday 5th November, 20 of our senior students in Years 11 to 13 took part in the Senior Maths Challenge. This was a national individual challenge and students faced 25 questions under exam conditions with nothing but a pencil, rubber and piece of scrap paper. The questions are not your straight forward sums, and take a lot of thinking outside of the box, trying to adapt mathematical ability to some tricky and unusual problems. They are never as straightforward as they first appear.
This weekend saw the return of the results and some fantastic scores. One of our Year 13 students Joanna Koter achieved a fantastic score of 108 which was well beyond the score needed to progress to the next round on the 27th November. This puts her in the top 25% of the country. We also achieved the following certificates:
Year 13: Oliwia Kotowska – Gold, Niamh Sweeney – Bronze
Year 12: Filip Wronowski – Gold, Ross Archer – Silver, Isaac Atkinson – Bronze
Year 11: Suyean Kim – Silver, Jack Dudley – Bronze, Wiebke Schnapper – Bronze
Well done to all who took part.
