Maths Challenge

Dame students once again excelled in the UKMT’s Senior Maths Challenge, gaining 5 Gold, 14 Silver and 11 Bronze Certificates. Although Notre Dame Students always do very well in this challenge, this is our best result ever.

But the success doesn’t end there as three students; Tuo Sang, Jiaxin Zhang and Qin Zou, have also qualified for the prestigious British Maths Olympiad.

Only three hundred students from the whole of Great Britain are allowed to enter this so for three of them to come from Notre Dame is a real achievement.

Tuo Sand also scored the highest mark overall in the Senior Maths Challenge

Two other Notre Dame students Alex Brush (U6) and Wenhao Zhang (L6) have qualified for the eccentrically named Senior Kangaroo Contest. Apparently the name derives from the colour of the papers (grey or pink depending on year) and are inspired by the Australian Mathematics Trust.
