Perfect Scores for Caldicott Boys in the BEBRAS Computational Thinking Competition

06 December 2019

 

In November, all boys took part in the BEBRAS Computational Thinking competition run by the University of Oxford.

 

The BEBRAS competition introduces computational thinking to children in over 40 countries around the world. It is designed to get children excited about computing and it certainly works for Caldicott boys.

Caldicott has had another fantastic year with all year groups getting results way ahead of the national average. With a record 34 boys in Years 6, 7 and 8 being invited to take part in the follow up online 2020 Oxford Computer Challenge in March. They were all in the top 10% nationally.

For the first time, two boys achieved perfect scores - Congratulations to Louis M (Year 3) and Montgomery CS (Year 5).

Boys who achieved Best in School were Thomas F (Year 4), Faris M (Year 6), Ben S (Year 7) and Max C (Year 8).
