Mathematicians at Rossett School are celebrating their success at the regional finals of the UKMT Team Maths Challenge held in York.
Teamwork and months of practice resulted in a strong performance from the school’s team of four, earning Rossett third place in the region.
Year 8 students Tij Kapote and Gidi Pliener, and Matt Rowe and Katie Merckel from Year 9, competed against top mathematicians from across the region in a series of mathematical rounds and challenges testing mathematical, communication and teamwork skills.
Tracey Davies, Maths Intervention Co-ordinator at Rossett School, said: The whole team did incredibly well on the day and worked brilliantly as a team.
One of our Year 13 students, Kate Lewis, gave up a lot of her free time to train and mentor them in the run up to the big day and her support was invaluable.
This is the first time a team from Rossett has been in a medal position and we’re very proud of our students for working so hard to achieve it.
Rossett’s mathematicians will be taking a short break for Easter before going back into training ready for next year’s contest.
