UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge

[09 Mar 2016]

Our most able students in Maths recently took part in the UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge. This is a national competition aimed at the top performing young mathematicians in Years 9 to 11. Exceptional younger students can also enter, although they do have their own challenge at the end of April.

Only 40% of those taking part are allowed to pass, with only 6% of those students gaining a Gold award, 13% gaining a Silver award and the rest achieving Bronze standard.

This year we achieved our best results ever, with 18 students being successful.

Bronze awards went to:

Jack Wright, Jack Foster, Jordan Williamson and Connor Charlton from Year 9;

Lucie Poucher, Luca Stephenson and Marco Barrulas from Year 10;

Kaso Kareem, Fortunate Ogbeje, Leon Kendrick, Nathan Atkins, Brandon Rowland, Billy Liversidge, Zak Macklin and Imogen Robinson from Year 11.

Silver awards went to:

Daniel Murphy (10) and Szymon Rutkowski(11)

Andrew Smith from Year 8 also achieved a Gold award. This was an astounding result for such a young student. Andrew now gets the chance to enter the next round of the challenge.

Well done to all the students who took part. We hope to improve on these excellent results in the Junior Challenge later this year.
