Oathall students have taken part in two maths challenges so far this year; the Senior (Year 11) and the Intermediate (Years 10 and 11).

 

The challenges aim to allow our students to use mathematical thinking, logic and problem solving to work on several questions that look beyond the national curriculum.

Fifteen of our students participated in the Senior Maths Challenge, which is open to Years 11, 12 and 13.  Entering this level allowed our students to really push themselves in preparation to move on to A-Level mathematics.

In total, Oathall had twenty students across years 10 and 11 participating in the Intermediate Maths Challenge this year. Five of our students managed to score highly in the challenge, progressing them onto the next round of the competition, where two have achieved a merit.

Looking forward to the Junior Maths Challenge, which is aimed at Year 7 and 8 students, so far we have had 105 students sign up to take part at the end of April.
