During November, our Computer Science students took part in the UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge.
Students performed well achieving certificates in each of the three age categories entered as follows:
- Junior (Year 7) – 47 Distinctions and 47 Merits
- Intermediate (Year 8/9) – 65 Distinctions and 61 Merits
- Senior (Year 10) – 16 Distinctions and 16 Merits
Additionally, the top 10% of students nationally will be invited to enter a follow-on competition, the TCS Oxford Computing Competition in March 2019. This will involve an impressive 147 Blue Coat Computer Scientists!
