Camborne students from both Nexus and the main campus recently took part in the prestigious UKMT Mathematics Challenge at Junior level and we are pleased to announce another year of record breaking results. The students have outdone themselves once again and received the highest number of certificates in the school’s history.  This set of outstanding results is testament to the drive, passion and determination for Mathematical problem solving shown by our excellent students.

The competition is entered by students from top Mathematics classes from across the country and is a chance for the most mathematically able to pit their skills against other excellent mathematicians in Years 7 and 8. In Year 7 eight students achieved a Bronze award and two achieved Gold; in Year 8 twenty achieved Bronze, fifteen achieved Silver and six achieved Gold. Below is a table showing the prize winners.

Special commendation must go to Ben M, Gregory E and Isabel D for getting through to the next round of the competition.

Students will be receiving their certificates in the coming weeks and the second round of the competition is held on Tuesday 11th June.
