Mathematicians Nick Brabbs, Elliot Ford, Aarib Khan and Connor Lenihan
travelled to Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School with Mr Healy to take
part in a Maths competition for the most mathematically able Year 10
students in Buckinghamshire.

The competition had two separate rounds: the first being a
problem-solving round with 15 challenging questions; the second involved
constructing a poster based on the topic of symmetry which also required
the students to answer three questions of substantial difficulty on that
topic. Our team won the problem-solving part of the competition outright
with an excellent score of 55 and were awarded signed copies of a book
by the renowned mathematics writer, Rob Eastaway. In the poster round,
the quality of the boys’ Maths was as good as the best, but they did not
quite match the presentation level of the winning group.

This is the second year running that Dr Challoner’s has won the
problem-solving competition. The students should be very proud of their
victory which is a very impressive achievement given the standard of the
competition.
