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 earlier this year. 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 ten of the students participating receiving awards. The certificates have now been received and the results are as follows.

Beren Carne-brooks (now year 9), Korey Eversfield (now Year 9), Matthew Ashdown (now Year 9), Sam Lewis (now Year 9), Emily Johnson (now Year 8), Lewis Newcombe (now Year 8) and Taran Purchall (now Year 8) all achieved Bronze certificates.

Kate Teppin (now Year 9) and Megan Smith (now Year 8) both achieved Silver certificates which puts them in the top 20% of mathematicians their age in the country. Kate also received the Best in Year 8 certificate.

Kieran Feeley (now year 8) achieved a Gold certificate which puts him in the top 6% of mathematicians his age in the country! An Amazing accomplishment as he also received the Best in Year and Best in School Certificate.

Well done to all students who took part.
