Puzzle of the Week
Congratulations to all of our students who have competed in the International Maths Puzzle of The Week this year. Overall, Wilson's came 4th in the world and was the best school in England! Eight students competed in every puzzle AND were correct each time (Gauransh, Pahalavan, Siddard, Rohan S, Naman T, Nithilan, Fraser and Spencer). Thank you also to all the parents who participated, two of whom appeared in the top 10! Year 7 was our most successful year group compared to other schools, with Year 10 and 11 being the groups who were consistently correct with their answers.
Junior Maths Challenge
The maths department would like to congratulate our Year 7 and 8 students who took part in the UKMT Junior Maths Challenge at the end of April. This year, four Year 8 students (Jamie, Navaj, Bhranav and Abhinav N) equally achieved the Best in School accolade as they achieved a perfect score with no mistakes!
Overall, 250 of our students achieved a gold certificate, 91 silver and 28 bronze which is fabulous. Following on from this, 30 students were invited to compete in the two hour Junior Olympiad after school in June (which is the toughest competition for that age group). Results will be available in September. Around 150 students were invited to take part in the online Junior Kangaroo; 40 of our students achieved a Merit certificate (which ranks them in the top 25% of students in the country), the rest of the students will receive a cerificate of participation.
Very well done to all of those involved.
