A team of four young mathematicians represented Hereford Sixth Form College at this year’s annual United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Senior Team Mathematics Challenge, on 15th November 2017. 

The West Midlands regional final was held at Malvern College and consists of three rounds combining high-end mathematical thinking, number manipulation and mental arithmetic under an immense time pressure.

The team excelled themselves this year and placed 2nd place, out of a total of 13 teams, representing a mixture of 13 state and independent schools in the West Midlands region.

This is a new record for Hereford Sixth Form College, and a well-deserved achievement for the students in the team.
