Fifteen of our top mathematicians in Years 9, 10 and 11 volunteered to take part in the UK Intermediate Maths Challenge. 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.
