Two talented maths students received impressive results over the summer after taking part in challenges set by the United Kingdom Maths Trust (UKMT). The UKMT invites the top performing young mathematicians across different age groups to take part in problem-solving challenges to further advance their education in this area.

Finn Evans (left) was in the Fourth Year when he was took part in the UKMT Hamilton Mathematical Olympiad last March. Finn achieved an amazing result and was awarded a Distinction in the challenge, which puts him in the top 150 best mathematicians nationally in his age group.

Nakutalab Debebe (below) was in the Second Year when he took part in the UKMT Cayley Mathematical Olympiad last spring, with the majority of his competitors being a whole year older. Despite this, Naku achieved an impressive result. He was awarded not only a Distinction, but a Bronze Award, which would have ranked him in the top 100 mathematicians nationally for that age group.

“These are incredible achievements for both boys, and they should be proud of their hard work. I am very excited to see what mathematical success can be achieved this academic year. Well done.”

Mr Patel, Teacher of Mathematics
