Return to Teachers Toolkit Search


The School of Mathematics & Statistics runs the Challenge and Senior Challenge for Years 8 and 10. The questions are sent out in January to all local schools and anyone else who has registered an interest. The deadline for returning entries is on the front page of the Challenge but is usually early in March. The best entrants, along with teachers, family and friends are invited to a prize-giving evening at Newcastle University in May. Please contact us if you wish to be added to the database.

You can access copies of the latest challenge questions and solutions and see the results of previous challenges on the School of Mathematics and Statistics website.
