Computing Girls in Top 10% Nationally
Congratulations to girls who took part in the Bebras Computing Challenge for a fantastic performance.
Over a third of our student body entered the Oxford University-organised Bebras Computing Competition. The competition involves solving problems using computational thinking – the same skills and techniques software engineers use to write programmes and apps.
The results are through and we are delighted that 28 girls that entered placed within the top 50% nationally, 13 in the top 25% and, fantastically three scored within the top 10%. Special congratulations go to Year 7 pupil Martha, who was just 10 points away from being invited to Oxford University for the Bebras Finals!
Our top scorers are:
Year 7 – Martha 178/200
Year 8 and 9 – Alyssa 129/200
Year 10 and 11 – Arwen 131/200
