Princethorpe Pupils Rise To The Intermediate Mathematics Challenge

05 Mar

Congratulations to all the pupils who were awarded certificates in the Intermediate Maths Challenge. Eight pupils received Gold Awards and four have qualified for the follow-on Kangaroo competition.

Back in February, pupils from Princethorpe College took part in the 2024 UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Intermediate Challenge, a prestigious national problem-solving competition that recognises the best young mathematicians in the country.

The Challenge involves answering multiple choice questions and is sat under normal school exam conditions. This year the challenge was taken on-line and the best pupils in the country were awarded Bronze, Silver or Gold Certificates.

The competition is aimed at Years 9, 10 and 11 and 77 Princethorpe pupils were selected to take part. It is a demanding exercise designed to stretch and test pupils’ mathematical skills, so the College is delighted that once again Princethorpe’s mathematicians achieved exceptional results.

Congratulations to Dylan Williams in Year 11, who was awarded a Gold certificate, and took the award for best performing pupil in school. Dylan Williams, Daniel Ovens Gibbs, Jay Patil and Zach Hawkins all performed so well that they have qualified for the follow-on round, the Intermediate Kangaroo challenge.
