Chetwynde maths stars medal in national contest

Talented maths pupils from Chetwynde School have secured silver and bronze medals in a national competition.

The 15 students from Years 7 and 8 have achieved outstanding results in the UK Junior Maths Challenge, which recognizes the brightest young mathematical minds across the country.

The UK Maths Trust organises the event to encourage critical thinking, problem-solving, and mathematical creativity. It provides a platform for students to showcase their skills and compete at a national level.

Head of Maths at Chetwynde Stefan Olphert said all the students had showed exceptional mathematical prowess.

“These results reflect the dedication and hard work of our young mathematicians. We are thrilled to see their passion for mathematics rewarded,” he said.

Meanwhile Ava Dunseath’s performance caught the attention of the University of Liverpool and she was invited to complete its Mathematical Education on Merseyside Challenge at home during half term.

Mr Olphert said this had given Ava an opportunity to try additional problem solving and explore mathematical concepts beyond the classroom.

“Ava’s commitment to mathematics is truly commendable. We are thrilled that her hard work has been recognized by such a prestigious institution.”
