Now in its 26th year, this highly respected mathematics competition is designed to give the most able mathematicians aged 12 and under the opportunity to stretch and challenge themselves beyond their normal maths curriculum.
The 32 young finalists from across the South West spent a day at Dauntsey’s School completing two mathematical investigations, a tough multiple-choice paper and finally, a ‘Maths Trail’ around the school site.
Pete Mobbs, head of maths at Dauntsey’s School, said: “The competition is all about getting pupils enthused about maths and we saw ample evidence of this today. We are always hugely impressed by the standard of maths achieved by the pupils and this year was no exception.”
