Over 250,000 students from across the UK sat the Junior Math Challenge with roughly the top 6% receiving a gold certificate, the next 13% silver and the next 21% bronze.

The Junior Maths Challenge is run by the UK Mathematics Trust and supported by The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. It is aimed at those in Years 7 and 8 and is sat in the schools.

“The Maths Challenges provide material to provoke students’ mathematical thinking and test their problem solving skills in an accessible and yet challenging way. Many congratulations to The Birkenhead Park School on their success in the Junior Maths Challenge; it is great to see achievement in Mathematics recognised”. Rachel Greenhalgh, UKMT Executive Director.

“We are extremely proud of everyone who entered the UK Junior Mathematical Challenge. Students worked really hard to develop their problem solving and mathematical reasoning skills and it is amazing that they are being recognised for their efforts.” Miss Clarke, Subject Lead for Mathematics.
