Great year for Cowley in the Intermediate Maths Challenge 2021!

At the beginning of February, Cowley students from 9J/Ma1, 9J/Ma2, 10E1/Ma1, 11Ea/Ma1 took part in this year’s Intermediate Maths Challenge, ran by the UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT).

The challenge was, as ever, a difficult one but the Cowleians who took part produced some excellent results.

113 students in total participated in the challenge, with 21 students picking up medals with one gold, three silver and 17 bronze.

Best in School (with the highest mark out of all our students) and achieving a gold medal was Rose Springford who achieved a high enough score to get through to the follow on Pink Kangaroo round which will take place shortly. Well done, Rose!

Our three silver medalists were Ella White, Charlie Kay and Joshua Yates, with Joshua making it through to the follow up Grey Kangaroo round. Well done to all three of you.

Our congratulations go to all the students who took part and represented Cowley magnificently.

A final thank you goes to the Maths department for organising the event for students, and to students and their families for their help sorting this with many carrying out the challenge at home.
