Second place in mathematics competition

Four boys from Year 12 narrowly missed out on first place in a regional Team Maths Challenge, finishing second from 38 teams. In a closely fought competition, Highgate School pipped QE for the top spot, while Henrietta Barnett School and St Paul’s School shared third place.

QE’s team of Gabriel Gendler, Madhi Elango, Abhishek Mukherjee and Aniruddh Raghu (pictured below, left to right) scored 152 out of a possible 176 in the Senior Team Maths Challenge at the Camden Centre in King’s Cross. The competition combined mathematical, communication and teamwork skills; it was aimed at offering pupils the opportunity to express and develop their enjoyment of Mathematics.

""“Although the boys were understandably disappointed at missing out so narrowly on victory, they nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed the experience of competing against other talented mathematicians.” said Mathematics teacher, Wendy Fung.
