The Imafidon family was recently named the smartest family in Britain.

Hailing from Nigeria, husband, Dr. Chris Imafidon and wife Ann, are parents to twelve-year-old twins Peter and Paula, who made history as the youngest children in ever, in the United Kingdom, to attend high school – before then also setting world records by passing A/AS-level math papers.

Sister, Anne-Marie Imafidon, graduated from high school at the age of 10, before gaining her Master’s Degree from Oxford University, at the age of 17 - becoming the youngest person to pass the A-level computing exam. And it doesn’t stop there.

Eight-year-old twin, Paula and Peter Imafidon, set a joint world record when they passed A/AS-level examinations in Maths, before, a year later, passing their University of Cambridge’s FAM (Advanced Mathematics) papers – making them the youngest students ever to pass the examination. At age 9, they made history as the youngest children in British history to attend high school.  

Now 14, and the youngest of the Imafidon siblings, the pair (nicknamed the ‘Wonder Twins’) are not only academically sound, but they are also highly respected musicians. And, they are good at different sports, with Peter a 100m and 400m relay champion, whilst also hoping to be a Prime Minister one day.

Sister, Paula – who, like Peter, is a keen musician - is a county champion in rugby and is keen on teaching Math. Annie-Marie is currently co-founder and CEO of Stemettes, an organization that has only helped 40,000 girls realize their STEM potential which she started in 2013.

She launched her own Stemettes STEM resources app, in 2016, which is used by thousands of “Stemillion” school club members and is working with several media companies to put more tech role models on screen. Ms. Imafidon also co-founded ‘Outbox Incubator’ the world’s first tech incubator for teenage girls.

Christiana Imafidon was honoured by the Minister of State for E-commerce as one of the youngest girls ever to receive a mathematics award at the age of nine. She went on to write ‘Maths Manual’ to help her friends struggling with Maths. This, after, when 11, she made history as the youngest student to attend a British university – the United Kingdom University.

She earned a government scholarship to study at undergraduate level, before receiving eight scholarships to the top schools in the country. Now an International Speaker, Christiana has also been named ‘The Most Influential Woman in Financial Technology’.

And then there’s Samantha, who passed two high school-level mathematics and statistics exams at age 6. She mentored the twins to pass their own Math secondary school test.

Samantha became the youngest girl in the UK to attend secondary school at the age of 9 and is also a Gold-level champion in the 100m and 200m relays. Of her own accomplishment, she says: “With the right environment, anyone could have done what I did”.

Father, Dr. Chris Imafidon, is working as an education consultant to several governments, as well as also serving as a mentor and coach to American students at various academic levels using Skype and web technology. He is of the mindset that anyone can achieve what he has with his family through a specific model for education.

For the Imafidons family, they have been used as a model to improve scholarship in Europe, Asia and beyond.
