On 1st May, 36 students voluntarily sat the U.K. Junior Mathematical Challenge 25 question multiple choice examination paper from 4.15 until 5.15 p.m..
The overall results were as follows: 11 Gold, 12 Silver and 7 Bronze Certificates were awarded and this is a fine achievement.
From the 2nd Year:
Gold: James Fuller, Alex Jones, Nikhil Ohri, Oliver Ferec Dayson, Natalie Fairhurst
Silver: Ishika Prachee, Anjelica Cleaver, Byung Gong, Rebekah Holubinka, Holly Baxter, Ishani Pabari
Bronze: Fiona McAllister
From the 1st Year:

Silver: Luke Benton, Mafiqul Choudhury, Catherin Lovett, Julia Roope, Jennifer Budden, Robin Hutchings
Bronze: Edward Cain, Richard Bolton, Tay Sparks, Joe Smith, Wen Lock, Benedic Cole
With a superb score of 118 out of 125, not only was James Fuller the "Best in School" but he has easily qualified for the next round, the Junior Olympiad (for which a score of 99 or more was required), which is due to be held on Monday 16th June. We wish him well in his preparation and execution of the paper, recognising that this test falls on the last day of the internal end-of-year examinations.
Certificates will be distributed when the school's normal assemblies resume.
Very well done to everyone who participated!
