Congratulations to Old Palace School’s amazing GCSE team who excelled themselves by winning the Key Stage 4 category, a feat made even more impressive by the fact that their score was the highest of all the Key Stage winners.

Towards the end of the last academic year three teams of six students took part in the SATRO Problem Solving Challenge, an engineering competition against other schools.

This year was the first ever virtual competition, held in individual schools, with the organisers explaining the task to the competitors via video. The students worked under time constraints to construct a device to fulfil various criteria and while each team competed against students in the same Key Stage across the country, they all worked on the same problem.

A team of Old Palace School GCSE students excelled themselves by winning the Key Stage 4 category, a feat made even more impressive by the fact that their score was the highest of all the Key Stage winners. This means that they beat all the other 39 teams that took part countrywide and fully deserved the trophy they were awarded.

Very well done to the team, whose members were Anaika, Grace, Cecily, Daisy, Dilusha and Vedika. The school’s A level team showed equally great teamwork, performing commendably to earn a runners-up place in the Key Stage 5 competition. All three teams tackled the tasks with enthusiasm and deserve every accolade.
