Do the maths

Pupils at Wetherby Senior have added up to get our School’s best ever result in a national maths competition.

At our last assembly before half-term, certificates were awarded to our pupils for their hard work and success in the Junior Mathematical Challenge. This UK-side competition, which has now been running for 25 years, is aimed at pupils in Years 7 and 8.

Mr Astbury-Palmer, Head of Mathematics at Wetherby Senior, said: “Well done to all our young mathematicians! We saw some outstanding results for Wetherby Senior, with 31 bronze certificates, 11 silver certificates and a School record of 8 golds, beating last year’s total of 5 golds.

“I’d like to make a special mention of Yu and Lukas (pictured with our Headmaster), who both achieved the best score in our School – an incredible feat for Year 7 boys! In addition, Leo qualified for the Intermediate Kangaroo with a merit, which puts him in the top 2% of the best mathematicians, for his age, in the UK!”

Organised by the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust, the Junior Mathematical Challenge encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in a wide variety of mathematical techniques, in order to solve interesting problems under timed conditions.
