Isabel Lipington in Year 8 achieved Second Prize in the University of Southampton Maths Challenge 2013. Charlie Cane in Year 7 also achieved a Certificate of Merit. Both students and their parents have been invited to an awards evening at the university to receive their prizes. The competition is held annually and is entered by students from schools across Hampshire as well as further afield. It consists of a selection of interesting mathematical questions for pupils to attempt at home during the February half-term. We are very proud of both students' achievements.

Fantastic Maths Results!
Portchester Community School is celebrating a brilliant set of results in GCSE Mathematics following the early sitting by the majority of the Year 11 students.
61% of students in the year group have now achieved at least a C grade with further passes anticipated in the summer. 20 students achieved an A* or A Grade and the overwhelming majority of the year group have shown significant improvement since joining the school. Congratulations to all students involved, and of course to the Mathematics staff. These results follow a superb set of English Literature results last month!
The visit was arranged by Year 11 student Layla Fendle who became aware of the work of the charity through her church, and who has been helping to host the visitors
