Students at Hereford Sixth Form College achieved 18 gold, 24 silver and 39 bronze awards in this year’s UK Mathematics Trust Senior Maths Challenge.

Over 82,000 students from across the UK returned scripts for the Senior Maths Challenge with the top 10% receiving a gold certificate, the next 20% silver and the next 30% bronze. Approximately 4,600 of the top students are invited to participate in round two of this challenge, the Senior Kangaroo.

In addition, approximately 1,500 of the top students are invited instead to participate in the British Mathematical Olympiad – a gruelling test of mathematical ability.  Hereford Sixth Form College had ten students who qualified for the Senior Kangaroo and two students who qualified for the British Mathematical Olympiad – a real honour indeed.
