Pupils Shine in UKMT Junior Maths Challenge

06 May 2024

A huge congratulations to the 80 Penryn College students who took part in last month’s UKMT Junior Maths Challenge – a competition aimed at Year 7 and 8 pupils.

Each of our participants performed fantastically well, with six Gold Awards, 29 Silver Awards and 23 Bronze Awards earned on the day – a set of results among the best the school has produced in the two decades it has taken part.

Special mentions go to Jowan T, Henry E, Sophie H and Xavier R, who all achieved Gold Certificates and have qualified for the next round which will be held on Tuesday 11 June.

Below, you will find two of the questions which were included in this year’s event!
