SJS Succeed in Junior Maths Challenge
In April, twenty-five Year 6 pupils from Stamford Junior School took the Junior Maths Challenge set by the United Kingdom Maths Trust. This week, eleven of the Junior School participants were awarded certificates for their achievement in the Challenge; five bronze, four silver and two gold.
Over 240,000 pupils from across the UK sat the challenge, with the top 6% receiving a gold certificate, the next 13% silver certificates and the next 21% achieving a bronze certificate. The challenge is normally intended for Years 7 and 8, so the Junior School pupils did extremely well to complete the exam.
William Smye achieved his Gold certificate with a very impressive mark of 93, which also made him “Best in School.” Alison Crow, Maths Co-ordinator at Stamford Junior School said, “Congratulations to everyone who took the challenge. They can all be very proud of themselves for undertaking and achieving so well in such a difficult exam.”
