Students from set 1 in Years 9, 10 and 11 recently took part in the UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge.

The top 40% of students nationally receive a gold, silver or bronze certificate in the ratio 1:2:3.

Around 500 of the highest scorers in each school year are invited to take part in the Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad papers, these include the Cayley, the Hamilton and the Maclaurin for students in Years 9, 10 and 11 respectively.

A further 5,500 pupils from across all three year groups are invited to sit either the grey or pink European Kangaroo papers. These are one-hour papers with 25 multiple choice questions, taken by pupils from over 30 countries worldwide. This year Lorcan Nicholls was selected to sit the Pink European Kangaroo paper, unfortunately he just missed out on a Merit Certificate but still an excellent achievement.

Well done to all!
