Young mathematicians from Shrewsbury Sixth Form College achieved outstanding results in this year’s prestigious UK Senior Maths Challenge.
“The outcome of 10 Gold, 29 Silver and 28 Bronze certificates reflects the skill and talent of the participating students,” comments Chris Sears, Assistant Head. “Maths is a very popular subject at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College with over 550 of our students currently studying it at A Level. Nationally it is the most popular A Level.”
Round 2 of the challenge, known as the ‘Senior Kangaroo’, is an invitation-only round to which sixth formers April Qian, Rose Laurie, Keir Degg, Simba Ding, Matthew Hoyle and Thomas Keene have been invited.
The challenges continue for Connor Bennett, Georgie Bumpus and Thomas Hilbert who have been selected to enter the British Maths Olympiad following their outstanding performances at the Senior Maths Challenge. Only 1,000 students a year are invited to enter this highly selective competition.
