Junior Maths Challenge Success

Pupils at Withernsea High School achieved four silver and two bronze awards in this year's UKMT Junior Maths Challenge.

Over 250,000 pupils from across the UK sat the challenge with roughly the top 6% receiving a gold certificate, the next 13% silver and the next 21% bronze.

In Year 7, Tracy Medcalf and Ruth Ogilvie achieved bronze awards while Rosie Littlewood and Daisy Clubley were awarded silver certificates. Daisy also took the title of ‘Best in Year’.

Year 8 winners Oliver Larsen and Leah Garbutt both took home silver awards with Leah also winning best in year in best in school. 

Teacher of Mathematics Daryl Block commented, "Withernsea High school has a proud tradition of entering students into the UK Maths Challenge. The questions set look for a deep understanding of mathematics and use applications rarely seen in the old GCSE exam paper. This makes for an engaging and very enjoyable challenge which will help the students when they come to sit their GCSE in the future. Congratulations to all the winners."
