Forty Walden School students from Years 9 to11 recently took part in the Intermediate Mathematics Challenge – a national event run by the UK Mathematics Trust. This is an opportunity for able mathematicians across the country to tackle intriguing and diverse mathematical problems alongside 600,000 other students nationwide.

Ten students from Walden School achieved Bronze and Silver awards and three students – Lifeng Qian, (Year10), James Goodwin (Year 10) and Kelvin Yang (Year 11) received the Gold award. James and Lifeng’s high scores also meant that they qualified for the next rounds.

James qualified for the ‘Kangaroo’ contest which involves competing against more than 5,000 students from over 30 countries worldwide and Lifeng was selected, as one of the top 500 highest scorers in the competition, for the ‘Olympiad’ round, a most impressive achievement for a student in Year 10. We wish them the best of luck for the next round!
