    Kimbolton Preparatory School pupils have excelled in this year’s Primary Mathematics Challenge. Together they have received a total of 17 awards, with two pupils possibly qualifying for the follow-on round.

    Organised by the Mathematical Association, the Primary Mathematics Challenge is a test with multiple-choice problems which interest pupils and are mathematical. It is aimed at the top 60% of pupils in Years 5 and 6 in England and their equivalent year groups in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and saw over 2000 schools participate this year. Top performing pupils are invited to take part in a bonus round in early February but these are not revealed by the organisers until the New Year. 

    Kimbolton’s Bronze award winners were Ben Hallam, Georgia Hallihan, Jack Mash, Holly Orchard, James Owens, Spencer Taylor and Charlotte Tully from Year 6, plus Lucia Mosca and Finley Peake from Year 5. 

    Year 5 pupil Campbell Fraser was awarded a Silver along with Thomas Lane, Henry Leigh-Smith, Joshua Rainford-Batty, Felix Walton and Joshua Wright from Year 6.

    Benny Moerman and Aidan Wong (both Year 6) gained top Gold awards and are now waiting to hear whether their scores were high enough to place them in the top 1-2% nationally and thus see them into the bonus round.

    Well done to all our award winners!

    STOP PRESS: Congratulations to Benny Moerman and Aidan Wong who have qualified for the Bonus round in February 2015 - best of luck boys!
