Students from years 9 to 11 entered the hall on Thursday 4th February to sit a challenging Mathematics paper which required them to be able to solve problems at an advanced level without calculators.

The paper is taken by about 200,000 students throughout Britain from all different types of educational establishments. Gold, Silver or Bronze certificates are awarded to the top 40% of students nationwide. The highest scorers in the country are invited to participate in the Intermediate Kangaroo or Intermediate Olympiad follow-on competitions. About 3,000 students take the Kangaroo and only 500 in each Year group from the whole of the country take the Olympiad.
