Students Achieve Superb Results in UK Maths Challenge
51 Stamford School students received awards in this years’ UK Mathematics Trust Intermediate Maths Challenge putting them in the top 40% of over 200,000 entrants.
Several Stamford School pupils got through to the next round of the competition where they had two hours to solve six tough problems, testing both their ability to find a method for solving the problem and then to provide a full and clear solution. This round was sat by pupils from over 30 countries worldwide. Hal Parkes and Rory Russell (from Year 10) and Mickey Hawkins and Douglas Douglas (from Year 11) gained a place in the top 25%, Hal and Mickey gaining a Merit award. Ben Wild (Year 9) went further and was placed in the top 500 students nationally.
Year 9 student Sam Rudd-Jones received a certificate of distinction and a bronze medal in the Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad and Kangaroo 2014. From 200,000 pupils across the country, Sam was one of the top 100.
