Earlier this year Bolingbroke pupils brought home eight silver and 13 bronze awards in the UK’s biggest national maths competition.

To receive a silver award puts students in the top 7% of entrants, and a bronze in the top 40%. “We would like to take this opportunity to extend a huge well done from Team Maths, with particular highlights for Haja (best in year 9), Emir (Best in year 10) and Stammy (Best in year 11) said Ms Tibbetts.
