This week we are delighted to announce the recently received results from the UKMT Junior Challenge. Our Year 11 students: Chad B and Rachel J qualified for the Hamilton Olympiad. Chad B also received a very prestigious Merit. Year 10 student Su Min C qualified for the Cayley and received a very impressive Merit. 

In the Junior Mathematics Challenge, 64% of our students were ranked with a medal (internationally only 40% of students get medals) with 14 students receiving a gold medal. Year 8 student Roy B even scored “Best in School”. 

Let us see what our students say about their good results: 

Chad B - "I want to thank my teacher Ms Chafer for her patience. She always helps me when I come across a difficulty."

Roy B - "Mr Lithgo always helps me to expand my maths knowledge and teach me how to challenge myself."

Su Min C - “I want to say thank you because my maths teacher Mr Lithgo gives me this opportunity to attend this competition. He also gives me practices and resources.”

Rachel J - “My maths teacher Mr Lithgo helps me to solve problems. What’s more, he also gave me Olympics papers to practice.”

With their passion in maths, our students learn from the teachers and build confidence in maths. Congratulations to our wonderful students!
