Eleven students scored so highly they have been invited to compete follow-on Olympiad rounds and three students will enter the Mathematical Olympiad which is reserved for the top 500 scorers in their year.

Head of maths Peter Buckingham said: 'This is a fantastic accolade for these students, who revel in their mathematical studies and enjoy the challenge that external competitions provide.”
