Well done to Oakham School’s talented mathematicians for achieving 6 golds, 8 silver and 8 bronzes in this year’s UKMT Senior Maths Challenge (SMC).
Over 82,000 pupils from across the UK returned scripts for the SMC, with the top 10% receiving a gold certificate, the next 20% silver, and the next 30% bronze.
The six Oakham students awarded Gold have been invited to sit one of the follow-on competitions, the Senior Kangaroo.
Form 7 student Oliver won the ‘Best in Year award’ whilst Form 6 students Angelina and Sherry jointly won the ‘Best in School’ and ‘Best in Year’ awards.
Four of those students awarded Gold represented Oakham School at the Regional Final of the Senior Maths Team Challenge, which was held at Loughborough University on November 21 2018.
