St. Helen's College pupils have achieved unprecedented success in the nationwide Primary Maths Challenge, a competition aimed at children in Years 5 and 6 across Britain.
Able pupils across the nation are asked to answer a series of multiple-choice questions, which are trickier than they first appear. Over 70,000 pupils entered the challenge this year and out of these, just 40 gold, 168 silver and 315 bronze medals were awarded. For five medals to go to one school is therefore a very significant achievement indeed!
Pupils who earned medals were Brendan and Freddie (silver medals) and Aniket, Fayotomi and Rishi (bronze medals), with Lilli also scoring highly in the challenge but narrowly missing a medal spot. The pupils will all receive certificates as a memento of their success. Very well done to all the pupils who took part and to the medal winners in particular!
