High School pupils have achieved numerous awards in national individual and team mathematics competitions throughout the 2018-19 session.


In November’s UK Senior Maths Challenge competition, two Gold, nine Silver and eleven Bronze awards were won with Fifth Year pupils Lucy Ashton and Daniel Bogomolnyi-Moulin winning Gold awards, Daniel achieving the top mark in the school and Paul Dewhurst achieving the best score in S6. Daniel and Lucy both qualified for the follow-on Senior Kangaroo, achieving certificates of qualification.

The UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge, mainly for S3 and S4 pupils, saw our mathematicians achieve five Gold, twenty-two Silver and thirteen Bronze awards. Ralph Hemsley, Adam Insall, James Miles (all S4) and Maxwell Wang (S3) achieved Gold awards, qualifying for the follow-on Pink Kangaroo round. A special mention should go to Joshua Liang of First Year who achieved a perfect score of 135 points in the competition and qualified for the Cayley Olympiad paper.

In the Mathematical Association’s Primary Maths ChallengeTransitus pupils won seven Gold, fifteen Silver and twenty-five Bronze certificates, with Alina Bartel, Harrison Bruce, James Clark, Andrew Dickson, Mustafa Fahd, Mikaeel Shabbir and Alexander Zhan all achieving Gold certificates. Harrison, Andrew and Mustafa all scored particularly highly, qualifying for the bonus round in February.
