Young mathematicians from Bassingbourn Village College have been honoured for their achievements in a national competition.

More than 260,000 students from across the country took part in the annual Junior Maths Challenge – with Bassingbourn Village College scooping four Gold, 15 Silver and 20 Bronze certificates.

The BVC Gold award winners were Ellie-Rose Kingsley, Evelyn Marshall, Elliot Perkin and Patrick Weekes. Elliot – who’s in Year 7 –and Year 8’s Patrick picked up best-in-year certificates with Patrick collecting an award for achieving the highest mark of the BVC entrants.

Patrick was also invited to sit the next stage of the competition, the Junior Mathematical Kangaroo.

BVC principal Duncan Cooper said: “It’s great to see these young people being honoured in this way. They have done really well – and Patrick in particular should be congratulated for winning his way through to the next round.”

The Junior Maths Challenge is run by the UK Mathematics Trust and is supported by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.

The charity aims to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics by organising competitions and enrichment activities for school pupils across the UK.
