On Wednesday 13 March, Year 8 pupils, Zoe Miles and George McGarrigle and Year 9 pupils Wangyu Kang and Yeonung Kim represented Hall School Wimbledon at the UKMT Regional Team Maths competition at St Olave’s School. We were competing against 33 schools.
After an intense day of competition, the results were announced: Hall School Wimbledon had gained the highest marks across the day! Our first place has secured an invitation to compete in the National Final at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London on Monday 17 June 2019. Over 1600 schools entered the competition and 88 have qualified to take part in the final. This is a huge achievement and we feel incredibly proud. Really well done!
