Cranbrook students take part in the UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge
Between 5th and 16th November, students from Cranbrook School took part in the UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge. Year 7 and 8 students did this in their Computer Science lessons and students from Years 9 to 13 took part with Mr Ansette during the week. This challenge was sat by roughly 200,000 students in the UK and tests the ability to think logically and demonstrates key skills involved in programming. In each year group, the average score at Cranbrook School was above the national average. However, especial congratulations should go to:
Daniella Attwood, Daren Banan, James Clark, William Dennis, Thomas Bell, Felix Hutchings, Maisie Ives, Lucas Kenney, Ewan McKenzie, Alec Stephen, Joanna Suewing, Samuel Tennant, Billy White and Eleanor White in Year 7;
Ed Cunningham, Matilda Greenacre, Harry Hamerton-Stove, George Herbert, Miguel Hinojosa-Berrocal, Sophie Lock and Isabella Payne in Year 8;
John Hubbard in Year 9;
and Ricardo Garcia in Year 10.
All of these students were in the top 10% for their age group and they have been invited to take part in the 2019 TCS Oxford Computing Challenge, which is run by Professor Peter Millican from University of Oxford. Well done to everyone who participated.
