Brainy Royal Latin School students tested their intelligence by taking part in the MENSA School IQ Test at school in March.

The test tested the verbal and non-verbal reasoning of the 34 students, from Year 7 to sixth formers.

All who sat the MENSA test scored higher than the national average score of 100, with 22 students passing the MENSA benchmark score and nine gaining the full score of 162.

Melissa Tynegate, lead teacher for academically most able students, said: “We have some absolutely incredible students with high IQs ranging across the year groups.

“We are delighted that so many students put themselves forward for the test and that they did so well.

“It shows what huge potential exists in our young people.”
