Further Maths Challenge

A group of year 10 students were challenged to use maths in new ways when they took part in a regional maths competition.

The four students - David Wilson, Dennias Muswere, Katie McCartin (pictured) and Lorna Milne - were chosen to compete against nine other schools in the East of England event at St John Fisher School in Peterborough last month.

They completed five rounds of further maths activities, including a Countdown-style challenge.

The group came fifth overall and the students all agreed that it had been a challenging but useful experience.

Dennias said: "It was good exposure and a good experience. I think we worked well together as a team."

The maths department also celebrated success elsewhere in the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Intermediate Maths Challenge.

The challenge aims to stretch the mathematical thinking of the top maths students in years 9, 10 and 11. Congratulations to the students who achieved awards - three students achieved a bronze award and two achieved a silver award.

  • Silver: David Wilson and Connor Towell;
  • Bronze: Rhys Alford, Keiran Wilson and Daniel Warren

The Junior Maths Challenge for students in years 7 and 8 will be on Thursday 26th April.
