The number-crunching skills of eight Paston College students have won them gold, silver and bronze in a national maths competition.

The youngsters from the North Walsham sixth form college took part in the national Mathematics Challenge run by the UK Mathematics Trust.

It saw 17-year-old Oliver Rowe from Sheringham win gold, while there were silvers for James Norman, 17, of Thorpe Market, Paul Shirley, 18, from Stalham, Karl Tizzard-Kleiste, 16, from Sloley and Jenny Earl, 16, of Wroxham.

Bronze winners were Tamara Hamilton-Morris, 17, of Blofield Heath, Daniel Mortin, 20, from North Walsham and Josh Ralston, 17, of Sheringham.

College head of maths Peter Brayne said: “Students tackle questions which require them to think creatively and laterally, using the “the glue” which holds their mathematical understanding together rather than using the content of their AS and A level courses.”
