17th May 2016 — St Francis Year 6 pupil Alexa Scott through to the Dauntsey's Dodecahedron Finals.
Congratulations to Alexa Scott, Year 6 pupils at St Francis School in Wiltshire. Alexa has been selected for the final round of the Dauntsey’s Dodecahedron Maths Competition!
The Dauntsey’s Dodecahedron is a highly respected maths competition, now in its 28th year. The competition sees over 1000 able mathematicians, from over 50 schools across the south west region, participating in the preliminary round. The competition is open to pupils aged 12 or under on the 31 August 2016.
Only the top 3% of entrants made it through to the final round, to take place at Dauntsey's on Thursday 9 June 2016. Alexa has done extremely well so far against pupils from other schools, many of whom are a year older than her. Alexa received no special preparation for this test at all, keeping to the St Francis ethos of teaching well, rather than teaching to the test. Well done Alexa and best of luck on 9 June!
