A schoolboy has fought off tens of thousands of challengers to win a bronze maths award.

Eleven-year-old Dominic Sayer, from Wimbledon, went up against 77,000 other children across the country in the opening rounds of the National Mathematics Challenge.

He successfully answered a variety of mathematical problems, and was in the top one per cent highest scorers who were invited to take part in the bonus round in February this year.

From there he was one of 256 pupils to win an award in that round.

The Dundonald Primary School pupil was presented with a certificate and medal at the school assembly on Friday, March 21.

The honour demonstrates his achievement as one of the best young mathematicians in the UK.

Catherine Martin of Dundonald Primary School said: "We are all extremely proud that Dominic has won a bronze award.

"It is such an achievement to receive recognition for mathematical ability on a national scale."
