The Perse coding competition is a national coding challenge that required entrants to solve problems by writing algorithms in Python and other programming languages.
Pupils are given a set of inputs and a set of outputs and challenged to write a piece of code that will carry out a set of operations on the inputs to get the desired outputs. Our Upper Thirds took part in the competition just before remedy and after a short wait, the results are in!
Congratulations to all who took part, but special congratulations to the following teams who achieved a distinction award and will be invited to take part in the next round for the top prize:
- Chongyang & Mirko
- Thomas & Alexander
- Louis & Victor
- Haolin & Warren
10 boys also achieved a merit award for high scores in the competition.
Congratulations to all of these boys!
