It was lovely to say Goodbye to our Year 13 students today and wish them all well in the future. A farewell barbecue was arranged on The Manor Lawn and a big thank you must go to Independent Catering for setting up such a fabulous lunch!

UKMT Junior Maths Challenge 2015
Earlier in the term, all students in Year 8 and 4 selected Year 7 pupils sat the UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge. The challenge consisted of 25 multiple choice questions, ranging in difficulty with extra points awarded to students who correctly answer the trickier problems. The challenge was sat in school under normal exam conditions and students had a chance to practise questions in their Maths lessons leading up to the event. The girls did very well with 3 students Tosin O, Farha M-A-F and Leah W who were the top performers, gaining gold certificates. In addition to those three, a further 24 gained silver certificates and 21 gained bronze certificates. 40% of all students who took part in the challenge gained a certificate overall. Well done to all those who took part!
In addition to the Year 8 students, a special mention should go to the Year 7 students for their participation. From the four who attempted the paper, Jennifer O gained a silver certificate alongside Amelia W and Eloise H who both gained a bronze. All will have another attempt next year and we hope they can improve on their results and aim for the gold prize!
Below is question 7 from this years paper! Can you find the answer?
The results of the calculation 123 456 789 x 8 is almost the same as 987 654 321 except that two of the digits are in a different order. What is the sum of these two digits?

Wishing all our students and staff a lovely bank holiday weekend and I look forward to seeing the girls who are not on examination leave, back in School on Monday 1st June.
