STAGS Win Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals in UKMT Junior Maths Challenge

Earlier this year in April, a total of 69 Year 7 and 8 students from STAGS took part in the UKMT Junior Maths Challenge competition. This event encouraged the pupils to enjoy solving problems by applying and developing their mathematical knowledge.
This year STAGS students achieved results which far exceeded those nationally with 33 of our students gaining gold, silver or bronze awards.

Srushti Khedekar in 7F and Amelia Kinghorn in 8J did exceptionally well and were invited to take part in further competitions.
As one of the top 25% in 5,700 entrants, Amelia gained a certificate of merit in the Kangaroo competition. Srushti was one of only 1,200 students taking part in the Junior Olympiad. Her problem solving expertise led to a certificate of merit which is a fantastic achievement.

Well done Srushti and Amelia.!
