The Intermediate Maths Challenge (IMC) took place on Thursday 7th February where 64 pupils from Years 11 and 12 took part. From this group 2 achieved gold, 12 achieved silver and 18 achieved bronze.

Special mention goes to Elsa Hoque who achieved the best result in the school. Both herself and Reuben qualified for a follow up round, the Pink Kangaroo paper, and we wish them the best of luck on Thursday 21st March.

The Senior Maths Challenge competition took place on 6th November, with 53 students from across Years 14 to 12 taking part.

Special mention goes to the following students:

  • Paige Irvine in Y13 who achieved Gold and the highest mark in the school.

  • Natalie Gunning in Y14 who achieved Gold and highest mark in Y14

  • Josh Thompson and James McNinch both in Y13 who achieved Gold awards.

All 4 of these students qualified for the Senior kangaroo round, which is a brilliant achievement.

We are delighted that two of our senior pupils will be attending the 51st National Mathematics Summer School this July. It is to be held at Woodhouse Grove School in Leeds. Elsa Hoque (Year 12) was invited to attend following an excellent performance in this year's Intermediate Mathematical Challenge. James McNinch (Year 13) applied for and was accepted to go as a Senior which will involve assisting with students and acting as a mentor. Both these pupils deserve our congratulations for their interest and achievement in Mathematics.
