Wick High School (WHS) pupils are celebrating after winning awards in a UK maths competition.

This year, over 60 S2 pupils took part in the ‘UK Maths Trust Junior Maths Challenge’. The Junior Maths Challenge is a national competition consisting of 25 multiple-choice questions, to be completed in 60 minutes.

The challenge is designed to make pupils think, test their mathematical reasoning and ability to problem-solve. The top performing pupils in the country are then awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates.

Bronze winners: Harriet Berry, Kenzie Cleland, Louise Coe, Caitlyn Fairweather, Jack Hanrahan, Matthew McGowan, Lia Micelli, Sophie Miller, Nathan Pope, Michael Ross, Nebi Senguler, James Sutherland, Owen Sutherland, Davie Swanson, Morgan Timbrell, Alex Traill and Megan Tucker.

Silver winners: Declan Bramble (Best in School), Rosa Kirkham and Emma Thomson.
