Intermediate Maths Challenge
The UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) is a registered charity whose aim is to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics. The UKMT organises national mathematics competitions and other mathematical enrichment activities for 11-18 year old UK school students. Students have 60 minutes to answer 25 varied multiple-choice mathematical problems. Over 200,000 students from around the UK entered the Challenge with the top 6% receiving a gold award, the next 13% receiving silver, and the next 21% bronze.
This term some of our Year 9, 10 and 11 students took part in the Intermediate Maths Challenge and they performed extremely well. Our students managed to achieve 6 gold awards, 19 silver awards and 40 bronze awards.
Every year several thousand students sitting the Intermediate Maths Challenge are invited to sit the Intermediate Kangaroo Papers. This year Philip Battersby (Y11), George Sanderson (Y11), Hannah Maxwell (Y10), James Keelan-Edwards (Y10), Sammy Kelly (Y10), Gabriel Oldroyd (Y9) and Sophie Widdows (Y9) have all made it through to the follow-on round.
Congratulations to everyone who achieved an award and those who qualified for the follow-up paper.
