The team from Guernsey Grammar School were triumphant in the BWCI Senior Maths Team Challenge, beating off competition from 10 other year 11, 12 and 13 maths students in retaining the top prize.
It was a Guernsey ‘clean-sweep’ with the runners up Elizabeth College and Ladies College finishing in third place. Jersey’s Victoria College finished fourth as the highest placed Jersey school.
The four winning students Cameron Allett, Lilian Woodall, Deanna Ferguson and George Headington all expressed their delight and surprise at winning. They will now represent the Channel Islands at the national finals in London next February.
BWCI’s Business Development Manager Mike Freer, presented the team with the BWCI Trophy saying "We are delighted to be able to continue to sponsor the maths team challenge which tests both the students' ability to solve complex mathematical problems, as well as their skills in working together as a team to work in the most efficient way".
He went on to say "As always, BWCI are pleased to sponsor this event. As a Channel Island firm of actuaries and consultants it is great to see that the local pool of talented mathematicians remains high."
BWCI will be continuing to support the team by assisting with the cost of the team's travel to the finals in London next year. Where we hope they will enjoy meeting some of the very best young mathematicians from across the UK.
