On 30th May, twenty-nine pupils from S1 and S2 participated in the annual UK Maths Trust Junior Maths Challenge, joining over 270000 pupils from across the UK.

Ryan Lin of S2 achieved a Silver Certificate, just missing out on a Gold by 1 mark. This would have placed him in the top 6% in the country! Corey Kennedy and Mobeen Hassan, both of S1, achieved Bronze Certificates.

Well done to everyone who took part!
