The King’s College maths department are celebrating after three pupils achieved fantastic results in this year’s UK Mathematical Olympiad for Girls (MOG).

Upper Sixth pupils Sian Dennett and Emily Knill were awarded distinctions, while Fifth Form pupil Lottie Knill was awarded a Certificate of Participation for achieving one mark off a distinction.

MOG’s aim is to encourage and inspire girls in Year 11 and above to get involved in more advanced mathematical problem-solving. The competition often consists of five challenging maths problems for which full written solutions are required.

Head of Maths, Andrew Perrins said: “We were delighted by the performance of the three pupils entered into the recent Mathematical Olympiad for Girls, a national competition reserved for only the very best female mathematicians across the country.”

He added: “Emily, Sian and Lottie should all be extremely proud of this exceptional achievement.
