Twenty one pupils won certificates in a national maths competition which tested their problem solving skills against the clock.

They certainly rose to the challenge - nine pupils won silver certificates while 12 picked up bronzes in the Intermediate UK Maths Challenge.

The school’s best performer was year 9 pupil and silver certificate winner Owen Frear, who also sat the Grey Kangaroo European Maths Challenge.

Jamie Johnson got the best year 11 score while Charlotte Bamford was top of the pile in year 10.

Full results - Silver: Owen Frear, Jamie Baker, Emma Johnson, Charlotte Bamford, Tara Herbert, Ben O’Rourke, Lucy Saunders, Megan Hawes, Chloe Davies.

Bronze: Joshua Doncaster, Holly Davies, Amber Davies, Nathan Butler, Rebecca Holt, Rhiannon Stevenson, Shannon Wilson, Katherine Quinn, Isaac Rowlands, Joshua Birchnall, Teri Parsonage, Ryan Pedley.
