National Mathematics Award presented to North School student26/06/17
Ralph Battle joined The North School in September 2016 when it became apparent that he was very good at Mathematics. In so far that Mr Munday, Ralph’s Year 11 Mathematics teacher, entered Ralph into the Intermediate Maths Challenge, a National competition in February 2017 and Ralph achieved a Gold award. Furthermore, Ralph qualified to take part in the Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad – only the top 500 students in that age group in the country are selected. This was a 3.5 hour challenge involving 6 problem solving questions – Ralph achieved a perfect score in 4 of them. This placed Ralph just outside the top 50 (by 1 mark) – so he receives a medal for his efforts!
