Mathematical Olympiad!

Mathematical Olympiad!

Kara Atterbury, Catrin Rigby, Kate Teppin, and Rosie Richardson all volunteered to take part in the Mathematical Olympiad Competition held last October. This is a national competition which has been designed to encourage girls to tackle advanced mathematical problems.  The competition is for girls only and is aimed at Sixth Form students. However, we were really pleased that two of our Year 11 students volunteered to participate in this competition. The Olympiad is a 2.5 hour competition which consists of five challenging mathematical problems. Each problem requires a full and written solution. This was the first time any of our students had entered this competition and our girls did extremely well, narrowly missing out on awards. Well done Ladies!!
