Published Thursday 2nd of June 2011 12:41:40 PM

Across the country, the Intermediate Maths Challenge this year was taken by over a quarter of a million children. From that huge field fewer than 1 percent of participants are invited to sit the Intermediate Maths Olympiads. This year four St Swithun�s students were invited to attend.

Kitty Ma, Gladys Tyen and Charlotte Mitchell sat the Year 10 Olympiad. Sophia Lee sat the Year 11 Olympiad.

Gladys was awarded a certificate of Merit for the Year 10 Olympiad. In addition, her performance on the Intermediate Maths Challenge earned her an invitation to a UK Maths Trust Summer School for a group of 40 gifted young Mathematicians from across the country. Mr Stephen Power, Head of Mathematics at St Swithun�s says �This is a truly exceptional achievement�.

Charlotte was awarded a certificate of Distinction with a score that puts her in the top 120 in the country. A superb achievement.

Sophia and Kitty were awarded Certificates of Merit, putting them in the top 500 of their years nationally.
