Mathematical success

Upton students scored highly in the UKMT Senior Challenge in November.

Upton students took part in the UKMT Senior Challenge on 5th November.

The UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) is a registered charity whose aim is to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics. The UKMT organises national mathematics competitions and other mathematical enrichment activities for 11-18 year old UK school pupils.  82,000 students from across the UK entered the Senior Challenge this year with the top 10% receiving  gold certificates, the next 20% silver and the next 30% bronze. 

The following students scored highly:

Matthew (Y13), Elliot (Y13), Austin (Y13), David (Y12), Emily (Y12), Zack (Y12) & Andrew (Y12) achieved Bronze certificates.

Ewan (Y13), Ethan (Y13), Anna (Y13), Zed (Y12) & Joe (Y12) achieved Silver certificates.

Daniel (Y13) achieved a Gold certificate.

Daniel scored in the top 4600 nationally and on 25th November he took part in the next stage competition called The Senior Kangaroo which involves students from across Europe.  We are awaiting results.

The students answered some very demanding problem solving questions to achieve these awards. They should be very proud of themselves.
