IT’S ALL adding up for Eastbourne College pupil Stephen Burchett, pictured above.

Stephen, who is in year 10, was placed in the top 40 in the country in his age group at the recent British Maths Olympiad.

As a result, he has won a much coveted place at the National Mathematics Summer School held in Queen’s College, Birmingham in July. Approximately 40 students will attend the summer school for a week of lectures, problem-solving sessions and mathematical competitions. Representatives from the top universities will also visit to advise the mathematicians on university and career choices.
