The Mount yesterday hosted the annual UK Maths Challenge for Year 8 and 9 students from twenty five different schools across Yorkshire and the North East.
Fulford School took the top award, with All Saints in second and St Olave’s /St Peter’s in third place in a day which organisers sai:
had a very nice, pleasant atmosphere.
Schools came from as far afield as Scarborough, Boston Spa and Middlesborough.
Helen Mumby, Head of Maths at The Mount, said
What was really nice yesterday was the students were a very calm but enthusiastic bunch. You don’t often get over 100 teenagers all in the same room showing such enthusiasm and passion for maths. The Mount looks forward to hosting this event again next year.
Next week, girls from S7 & S8 are completing the individual Maths Challenge in lessons. The cycle begins again with individual challenges and team competitions for senior years in the Autumn Term.
