Trinity students have seen considerable success in computing competitions, recently. First up, at the recent Oxford University Computing Challenge, Trinity saw 97 students across all year groups participate in Round 1 – with 37 students achieving a Merit and three students achieving a Distinction.
Mr El Moudden says: “Well done to Sixth Form student, George Ogden, Finlay Evans in Fourth Year and Jamie Woodward in First Year who achieved Distinctions. Particular congratulations go to George who came first place nationally after scoring full marks in all rounds of the competition and beating 786 students in the elite category for students aged 16 to 18. George will be invited to attend an awards ceremony at Hertford College in Oxford this summer.”
The Oxford University Computing Challenge, where our students also achieved considerable success, is an invitation-only event which aims to encourage students who achieved a top ten per cent score in the UK Bebras challenge. It is designed to help students further develop their skills and to produce programmed solutions to computational thinking problems.
Eight of our students also competed at the British Informatics Olympiad (BIO), an annual competition in computer programming for secondary schools and sixth form colleges where they stand the chance to represent Great Britain in the prestigious International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI). George Ogden, Lucas Rebato, Asher Falcon, Dylan Chung, Freddy Matta, Aditya Iyer, Jenson Wong, and Ronak De took part and, once again, particular congratulations to George who made it through to the competition finals at Trinity College, Cambridge… yet another considerable achievement!
"Particular congratulations go to George who came first place nationally after scoring full marks in all rounds of the competition - beating 786 students in the elite category!"
