Kineton High School students have again excelled in the 2014 United Kingdom Mathematics Trust Junior Challenge. The competition recognises the best young mathematicians in the country. It is aimed at the top third of pupils in Year 8 or below. The challenge involves answering 25 multiple choice questions in one hour and is sat under normal school exam conditions. The papers are then marked by UKMT. The best students nationally are awarded bronze, silver or gold certificates.
This is a challenging test designed to stretch and challenge students’ abilities so we were delighted that just before half term we found out that 28 amazing Kineton students have been awarded 3 Gold, 7 Silver and 18 Bronze certificates.

Gold winners – Caitlin Smith (best in year), Joseph Jobling and Steven Liddell
