Congratulations to Katherine (Year UVI) who achieved a fantastic Distinction in round one of the British Mathematical Olympiad, organised by the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT).
After sitting a 3½-hour paper in school, she narrowly missed out on qualifying for the next round.

The British Mathematical Olympiad is a follow-up to the Senior Mathematical Challenge.
"As well as challenging high-scorers from the Senior Mathematical Challenge, the British Mathematical Olympiad is an entry point to the training and selection programme for international competitions."
Katherine sat the Senior Mathematical Challenge in 2021 and achieved a fantastic Gold award.
The UKMT also runs a Junior Mathematical Challenge and Intermediate Mathematical Challenge.
