Congratulations to all participants, with special mention to Jamie Fry, who achieved a perfect score of 200. Only 91 out of 209,744 students nationwide achieved a perfect score in this age group, which makes Jamie’s achievement incredibly impressive!

78 St Bart’s students received a Gold certificate for achieving a top 10% score in their respective categories and therefore are now invited to participate in the Oxford University Computing Challenge (OUCC). The OUCC is taking place between 15 – 19th January 2024. This event encourages students to develop their skills further and produce programmed solutions to computational thinking problems. We wish them all the best!
