Glenalmond College puts forward record number of candidates in UK Maths Challenge

Glenalmond College put forward a record 100 pupils, from Fourth Form through to Upper Sixth, to compete in the UK Senior Maths Challenge on Tuesday 7 November. 

The school had so many strong mathematicians that a quarter of all pupils took part in the competition; up 10% on last year and very rare for a school to put forward such a high proportion of its total pupil body.
