On 11th November thousands of sixth form students took part in the UK Senior Maths Challenge, run by the UK Mathematics Trust.
A record number of Y12 and Y13 A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics students from St John Rigby College participated in this years’ challenge.
The challenge is a gruelling 90 minutes in length and is designed to make students think and encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought and fluency by using basic mathematical techniques.
Out of the group of talented mathematicians 18 received awards in Bronze, Sliver and Gold which were presented by principal Peter McGee. (pictured)
The ‘Best in Year Award’ were given to Y13 student Joshua Moore (formerly of St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic High School) and Y12 student James Pouncey (formerly of Culcheth High School). James also received the highest score out of the group meaning he was awarded with the ‘Best in School Award’ which is an incredible achievement for a Y12 student.
