Students from Winsford Academy achieved a range of awards in this years UK Intermediate Maths Challenge.

Over 200,000 pupils from across the United Kingdom sat the challenge with only 6% to 13% of those pupils gaining a certificate. Just to prove how strong maths is at Winsford Academy, our pupils gained 27 certificates!

Our key performers were:

Emily Waring (Best in Year 10)

Amy Gaskell (Best in Year 9)

Alex Lafferty (Best in Year 8)

Jake Lafferty (Best in Year 7)

A special mention must go to Alex Lafferty who not only gained best in Year 8 but also achieved Best in the School. As Alex is one of the top 1500 students in the country, he has been invited to the follow-on competition, the Kangaroo Qualifier. If he gets through that round, he will be invited to take part in a Europe wide challenge.

This is a great achievement! Well done to Alex and to the rest of the team!

Thank you to Mr Henderson for coordinating the project with such verve and commitment.
