Torpoint Sixth Form Students Success in UK Maths Competition!

Torpoint Sixth Form Students Success in UK Maths Competition!

Ten of our top mathematicians in Years 12 and 13 took part in the UK Senior Maths Challenge in November. The Maths Challenge is a one and a half hour paper that contains a variety of questions that involve puzzles, problems, logic as well as maths, which make them challenging and enjoyable to those taking part. It is a national competition with the best mathematicians from all over the UK participating. The paper is designed to challenge the most able students and get them to think about the maths skills that they need to use.  There were fantastic results at Torpoint Community College with five of the students participating receiving awards.

Craig  (Year 12), George (Year 12) and Tom (Year 13) all achieved Bronze certificates. Sam (Year 13) also achieved a Bronze certificate alongside Best in Year 13.

Harrison (Year 12) achieved a Silver award which puts him in the top 30% of mathematicians his age in the country! He also received the Best in Year 12 and Best in School Certificate.
