Oakmoor School in Bordon is celebrating its best ever results in the UKMT Junior Maths Challenge.

Every year able mathematicians in Year 7 and Year 8 take part in the Junior Maths Challenge organised by the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust.

The challenge consists of 25 multiple choice questions of increasing difficulty.

This year Oakmoor School pupils gained four gold awards, 14 silver awards and 29 bronze awards.

Three pupils scored such a high mark they were invited to compete in a further round of the competition.

The school congratulated all pupils who gained an award, with special congratulations to Leia, Matej, Cerys and Luke, who gained gold awards. Leia, Matej and Cerys will be competing in the next round of the competition.

Headteacher Paul Hemmings said: “I am delighted our students have had their mathematical expertise recognised as part of such a high-profile national challenge and am very proud of their achievements.

“In 2019 our Year 11 GCSE mathematics results placed Oakmoor School and our students in the top three per cent of the country. It is wonderful our younger students are clearly following this successful path.”
