Cornish Schools Olympiad

Suitable to the most academically able students in Year 5. Schools in Cornwall can sign-up a team of four students.

Children who are home educated can also get involved; please contact Nexus directly and we will arrange for them to join us.

 A one-day celebration of mathematics and includes workshops, talks and an exciting competition. The aim of the Olympiad is to provide a competitive and exciting environment for the young mathematicians of Cornwall to share their love of the subject. 

The Olympiad offers an opportunity for those young mathematicians with a passion for challenge and discovery to take on teams from across the county in competitive mathematics – but also the forum and environment to discuss, explore and learn about this amazing subject. The talks and workshops will give the students insight into the wonderful world of numbers, mathematical research and some of mathematics’ most famous problems.

“The children of Cornwall are exceptionally talented. We want to harness and celebrate that talent. This a fantastic opportunity for those students who are most passionate about mathematics to come together in a celebration and engage in some friendly and competitive challenges.”

The previous Maths Olympiad was held at Nexus and was won by Newquay Junior Academy with Pennoweth School coming narrowly in second place.
