Mathematicians Win Gold in UK Mathematics Challenge

Mathematicians Win Gold in UK Mathematics Challenge

Almost 60 girls from across the Sixth Form and the top sets of Upper 5 and Lower 5 recently competed in the UK Mathematics Trust Senior Challenge. An outstanding total of 37 girls received awards (7 Golds, 15 Silvers and 15 Bronzes). All seven of the Gold winners (Phoebe, Georgina, Vinna, Pauline, Jiexia, Cynthia, and Sammy) also qualified for a follow-on competition and will sit an additional paper in early December. 

Particular congratulations to Phoebe who scored a truly remarkable 125/125 in the competition; this is the first perfect score anyone in the Mathematics Department has ever seen in this competition. 

A special mention also for Cici from Lower 5 who achieved a Silver award.
