Year 9 pupil Vika Barker was approached to audition for Channel 4’s Child Genius, hosted by Richard Osman, in which a group of child prodigies compete in a series of tasks to gain the title of Child Genius.  Along with several hundred others, Vika completed rigorous tests of maths, history, and IQ, and just 18 were chosen to take part in the televised rounds of the competition.  She put in a really fantastic performance, finishing 12th out of some of the brightest children in the UK.  Vika found it to be a great experience and despite the stress of performing in front of a live audience and TV cameras, she very much enjoyed the opportunity.
