Student Makes Final of UK Bebras Computing Challenge
Posted on 12th December 2016
This term more than 120 A Level Computer Science students took part in the UK Bebras Computing Challenge. This is a national competition testing students’ computational thinking and problem solving skills. Over 25% of our students were awarded a certificate of Distinction.
Rees Newton-Sealey, who studies A Level Computer Science, Mathematics and BTEC Level 3 IT, gained the highest score in College and has qualified for the final at the University of Oxford which takes place in January.
The Computer Science and IT Department provide a variety of extra-curricular opportunities. This year students have taken part in an outward-bound activity day, a trip to the EGX gaming exhibition and talks on artificial intelligence and programming.
