King’s Ely students representing UK in international Maths competition


Thursday 25 October 2018



King’s Ely is representing the UK in this year’s International Mathematics Without Borders Tournament.

Ten students from Years 8 to 11 competed in the first round of the competition on 18 October. The second round will be held in January, the third round in March and the final round in June – in Bulgaria!

Each round consists of 20 open-ended and challenging mathematical questions, which have to be answered in one hour. The top five per cent of students internationally will receive a Gold medal.

The students representing King’s Ely are: John Lau, James MacGillivray, Elliot Bord, Ben Collier, Ayala Gate, Sam Barber, Eleanor MacGillivray, Benedict George, David Harris and Thomas Kim.

Head of Mathematics at King’s Ely Senior, Audrienne Bezzina, is understandably excited. She said: “The International Mathematics Without Borders Tournament has been running for six years now and I am over the moon that King’s Ely is representing the UK in this year’s competition. It is a fantastic opportunity for some of our mathematicians to compete against mathematicians from countries around the world. Good luck to our students as they compete over the next three rounds!”
