George Tutton and Ryan Everett came top of their years!

The national competition is open to year 12 and 13 students studying A-level Maths and this year more than 75,000 people across the country sat the paper, which consists of an increasingly challenging set of multiple choice questions.

St Brendan’s students take on the well-recognised challenge each year with great success and 2018 was no exception, with 1 student securing gold, whilst 12 silver and 13 bronze certificates were awarded. Second year student Ryan Everett did particularly well in attaining a gold award and was then invited to join top achieving students from across Europe in the senior Kangaroo maths competition! As well as taking on the nation’s top maths challenges, Ryan has been busy submitting his UCAS applications to the UK’s top universities including Oxford, where he hopes to study Computer Science!

Congratulations to all students who took part in a very difficult competition and to those who secured certificates!
