Ten students from King’s Ely will be representing the UK in an international maths tournament.

The clever classmates from Years 8 to 11 competed in the first round of the mathematics without borders competition on October 18.

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 maths questions, which have to be answered in one hour.

The top 5 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, 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.”
