Strong performance in Mathematics competition

Queen Elizabeth’s School has recorded a second victory in the current Hans Woyda Mathematics Competition after achieving its best-ever result last year.

In 2008-09, QE reached the quarter-finals of this prestigious tournament, which involves 64 top state and independent schools from across the South East.

The School has made an excellent start in the 2009-10 contest, following its victory against Channing School in round 1 with an even more convincing win – by 47 points to 9 – against St Michael’s Girls’ Grammar School.

The School is represented this year by: Ariel Weiss, of Year 13; Kamran Tajbakhsh, Year 12; Jaymin Thakrar, Year 11, and Gabriel Gendler, of Year 9. Ariel and Kamran were both also members of last year’s team.

The competition has been running for 30 years and is named after a former Head of Mathematics at Kingston Grammar School.
