Bedales takes on UK Maths Challenge

Fifty-five pupils from Blocks 3, 4 and 5 took part in this year’s UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Challenge and the majority of our students obtained bronze, silver or gold certificates.

Special congratulations go to Aidan Hall, Tomer Ziv, Raffy Clarke Hall, Harry Huang, George Ford and Rachel Forsyth, who won gold and qualified for the follow-up round, the European Kangaroo. Harry Snell won best in school and was invited to the Intermediate Maths Olympiad, which places him in the top 500 mathematicians nationally for his age group. Could you do complete the challenge?
