**Excellent Senior UKMT Results**

The Mathematics department are celebrating some of their best ever UK Maths Challenge (UKMT) results, with 18 students from the school being awarded certificates. The UKMT Senior Challenge is designed to challenge even the very best Y12 and Y13 mathematicians from schools around the world, so the school’s results this year were really impressive. In order to gain a certificate students must excel whilst tackling 25 mathematical problems. These are designed to test a student’s problem solving skills and how they can apply their mathematical ability to real life situations.

In total we had 5 Bronze awards, 9 Silver awards and 4 Golds. This year the Gold certificates went to Aom, Elias, Luciano and Nayoung. Aom also gained the Top in School certificate, whilst Nayoung was awarded the Top in Year 12. Congratulations to all the students who took part this year and we look forward to some equally impressive results when the Junior and Intermediate UKMT competitions are held later in the year.
