It All Adds Up

Congratulations to all our Year 7 and Year 8 students who took part in the UKMT Junior Maths Challenge (JMC) in April this year. The JMC is a 60-minute, multiple-choice paper, aimed at students across the UK in Year 8 or below. The challenge encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems.

Over 272,000 children took part in the competition this year and we were delighted to see so many of our students achieve Bronze, Silver and Gold awards, a real testament to the hard work and dedication of the students themselves and their Maths teachers.

Gold award winners, Dawid M and Becky L, were able to move onto the ‘Junior Kangaroo’, an invitation only, score based follow-on round, which is offered to only a few thousand of the original hundreds of thousand of competitors. Dawid and Becky sat this additional challenge in June and we are waiting excitedly to hear the results.

You may recall in February that many of our Year 9 to Year 11 students took part in the Intermediate Maths Challenge, also securing a whole host of awards.
