In this year’s UKMT Senior Maths Challenge over 82,000 pupils from across the UK returned scripts, with the top 10% receiving a Gold certificate, the next 20% Silver and the next 30% Bronze.

Three Luckley students managed to achieve Gold certificates. Sixth Form students Winnie W, Alice W and Emma Q achieved Gold and also qualified for the Senior Kangaroo which they entered on Friday 1 December – we are awaiting results.

There were also four bronze certificates awarded to Nina W, Sophie B, Katrina J and June L.

Luckley’s top two female Mathematicians Winnie and Alice were also entered for the Female British Maths Olympiad and both achieved Distinction, scoring well above the 14 marks required for this award.

Winnie, Alice, Emma and Ken L (pictured) also entered the Senior Team Maths Challenge, which this year was held at Alton College. The competition was extremely fierce, with over 1500 schools nationwide entering.
