Our International Manager, Shaun Clark, has just returned from visiting Shanghai in China where he spent time visiting four schools, two existing partner schools and two potential new ones.
We are pleased to congratulate Spencer Thornton (Year 2) and Mia Brimilcombe-Cowie (Year 1) who were chosen as finalists with their dresses being exhibited in the Competition Gallery at the show, as well as being modelled on their catwalk.
Approximately 7,000 of the top students are invited to sit one of the follow-on competitions, the British Mathematical Olympiad (BMO1) or the Senior Kangaroo (SKANG).
