UK Maths Challenge Success For KSA Students
Forty students took part in the national challenge, which consisted of a written test of 25 problems that had to be completed in an hour.
Five students achieved the bronze award, 10 picked up a silver award and 3 students struck gold.
Christian Dobson, who won a gold award, was invited to take part in the next round - the European Kangaroo Maths Challenge - last month, in which more than 5.5m students from across Europe competed. The results of this stage of the competition will be announced after Easter.
The winners for each award were:
Assistant Director of Maths Lorraine Taylor said: "This is the first year students at KSA have participated in this national competition.
"The competition challenges students to apply their knowledge of maths to solve new problems.
"The problems are challenging but they offer a fantastic opportunity for the students to discuss how they approached problems in different ways and to enjoy doing maths.
"Congratulations to all the students who took part.
"They have done very well to achieve so many awards and to get through to the European competition is an amazing achievement."
Year 7 and 8 students at KSA will compete in the Junior Maths Challenge on Friday, May 6th.
