In a record year at St Olave’s Grammar School, students achieved a stunning 96% A*/B grades. A total of 75% of all grades were at A*/A, 3 percentage points up on last year’s. 32 students gained straight A* grades in at least 3 subjects.

19 May - Stunning Mathematics Success


Olavians from Years 7 and 8 achieved another stunning set of results in the recent Junior Mathematical Challenge, virtually replicating last year’s records with the achievement of 138 Gold, 67 Silver and 34 Bronze certificates. A particular cause of celebration is the number of students qualifying for the follow-on rounds that will take place in June. An amazing, record 22 students have qualified for the prestigious Junior Mathematical Olympiad which involves seeking solutions to six fiendish problems, whilst a further 63 students have qualified for the Junior Kangaroo, an international multiple choice competition. Congratulations go to Rohan Selva-Radov and Leo Luo for achieving best-in-year scores. In addition to this corporate success, it is pleasing to report that, in the light of his truly exceptional performance in the Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad, Linus Luu of Year 9 has been invited by the UK Mathematics Trust to be one of the 24 participants in the Olympiad Initial Training Camp at Queen’s College, Oxford, in late August. As well as an early taste of college life, the invite promises Linus some invigorating and challenging training.
