UKMT Team Success
On Thursday, 5 March, Ivybridge Community College students Katie Dilloway and Ayden Cutland, both in Year 8, and Lucy Andrade May and Matthew Gilvear, in Year 9, represented the College in the regional finals of the UKMT Team Challenge which was held at Coombe Dean School.
Teams were made up from Gifted and Talented students from schools and colleges across the county, and this year saw fifteen teams taking part.
At the end of stage one in the Challenge, there was only one point separating the top five teams. The Ivybridge team took the lead in the second Challenge, but eventually took second place.
Caron Russell, Mathematics Resources Assistant, who accompanied the students said, “Our students performed well above average to finish in second place, an outstanding achievement! Congratulations are well deserved.”
