STUDENTS SEE SUCCESS IN UK'S BIGGEST MATHS COMPETITION

Students at ASPIRE have been awarded certificates for their success in the UK’s biggest maths competition.

A number of pupils from Year 7 and 8 sat the Junior Maths Challenge earlier this month.

The competition, organised by the UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT), is a 25-question paper that students answer in one hour and under exam conditions.

It is designed to stimulate interest in maths in large numbers of pupils.

Congratulations go to Theo for getting a gold and Pavel and Charlotte for getting a silver.

A huge well done to Sarah, Jack, Artem and Eleni for picking up a bronze in the competition, too.

These incredible results mean that, out of the 100,000s of children that took part, the students are all in the top 40 per cent of performers.
