Torpoint Students Success in UK Maths Competition

Torpoint Students Success in UK Maths Competition!

Thirty of our top mathematicians in Years 7 and 8 took part in the UK Junior Maths Challenge in April 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 some fantastic results at Torpoint Community College with seven of the students participating receiving awards.
