Pupils from Robert Gordon’s College have been declared as runners up in this year’s National Young Mathematicians’ Awards.
The team battled through three rounds against 500 schools from across the UK to make it to the grand final at the University of Cambridge.
Yersin Ordabay, Chenghong Zhu, Morven White and Emma Woodhouse from the school were presented with their trophies by popular CBBC presenter and awards ambassador Stefan Gates.
The annual event, organised by tuition provider, Explore Learning, and the NRICH Project at the University of Cambridge, aims to inspire the minds of the country’s brightest young students.
Claire Rae, a teacher at Robert Gordon’s College, said: “The National Young Mathematicians’ Awards have been the most fantastic learning opportunity for our pupils.
“Not only have they furthered their problem solving ability, but also their ability to work as a team which is such an important skill for life.
“We are so proud of the children from Robert Gordon’s College. Making it to the national final at Cambridge has been an amazing day for us all.”
The National Young Mathematicians’ Awards is the biggest maths competition for school teams in the UK.
It is open to teams of four children, two boys and two girls, aged nine to 11.
