Torpoint Student Success in UK Maths Competition!

Torpoint Student Success in UK Maths Competition!

Thirty of our top mathematicians in Years 7 and 8 took part in the UK Junior Maths Challenge in May. The Maths Challenge is a one 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 taking part. 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 eleven of the students participating receiving awards.

Megan (year 8), Alex (Year 8), Quinn (Year 7),  Marley (Year 7) and Oliver (Year 7) all achieved Bronze certificates.

Louie (Year 7), Zak (Year 7)  and Maizie (Year 7) all achieved Silver certificates which puts them in the top 20% of mathematicians their age in the country.

Ben (Year 7), Bridgette (Year 7)  and Kieran (year 8) all achieved Gold certificates which puts them in the top 6% of mathematicians their age in the country! An Amazing accomplishment!! 

Bridgette and Kieran both also received the Best in Year Certificate. Kierans score was also so good that he has automatically been entered into the next round. He sat the Kangaroo Round Paper on the 12th June and we are still awaiting his results for this! So watch this space!
