Over 200,000 pupils from across the UK sat the challenge. Nationally the top 6% were awarded a gold certificate, the next 13% silver and the next 21% bronze.

The challenge is run by the UK Mathematics Trust, a registered charity whose aim is to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics. It organises national mathematics competitions and other mathematical enrichment activities for UK secondary school pupils in Years 9, 10 and 11.

Daryl Block, the Teacher of Maths who oversaw the challenge, 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 a GCSE exam papers. This makes for an engaging and very enjoyable challenge.”
