Maths Success!

Phoebe Jackson, Upper 5, has been invited to a UK Mathematics Trust Olympiad Initial Training Camp at Queen's College, Oxford.

The main purpose of this camp is to offer a week's intensive training in mathematics outside the conventional syllabuses to a few of the most able young mathematicians in the country. It will also be used to identify potential members of a squad of students who will continue training throughout the year with a view to representing the UK in one of the future International Mathematical Olympiads.

There will only be 22 pupils on this camp which will be led by Dr Peter Neumann, an Emeritus Fellow of Queen's. 

Head of Maths, Sean Lang, comments: "This is the first year that the UKMT have included Year 11s in the Training Camp and therefore Phoebe will be one of the youngest to attend. It's a phenomenal achievement."
