Pupils Excel at Intermediate Mathematics Challenge

Recently a group of the best Middle School Mathematicians at the School took part in the annual Intermediate Mathematics Challenge held in many schools around the UK.

The Intermediate Mathematics Challenge, a competition for Year 9, 10 and 11 pupils, exploits their knowledge of problem solving skills and the lack of a calculator means they have to be competent Arithmeticians too.

This year pupils excelled themselves by achieving 6 Golds, 13 Silvers and 11 Bronzes, our best results ever in this competition. Three of the pupils qualified for the next stage of the competition. They were Year 9 pupils, Beatrice Roberts and Muang Luanghvisut, as well as Year 11 pupil, Hannah Clarke. The other Gold winners were John Paul, William Johnson and Luke Taylor.                                                                                                                                                                                                    

The Silver awardees were Joseph Hughes, Rebecca Neary and David Powell, all in Year 9, Emily Palmer in Year 10 and Year 11 pupils, Samuel Dapling, Louis Chaudron, Matthew Dewhirst, Robert Gereke, Joseph Haigh, Bethany Lyttle, Andrew Main, Mark McBrien and Dominic Simpson.
The Bronze awardees were Year 9 pupils, Anouska Gwilliam, Richard Lay and Hannah Miles, as well as Year 11 pupils, Yum Cheng, Alex Eaton  Lucia Jones, Le Cu Tung Lam, Ant Manawongsakul, Georgina Ottaway , Joachim Pescod and David Whitehead.

Mr Cowley, Head of Mathematics commented, I am delighted by our pupils   success and congratulate them all on their achievements.
