A TALENTED Howley student has been invited to join the elite High-IQ society after achieving the highest possible test score.

William Kenwright, a year eight pupil at Sir Thomas Boteler CE High School, left his family and friends stunned by achieving a Mensa IQ test score of 162.

According to the website, a Mensa IQ test  gives an indication of general cognitive abilities, represented by an IQ-score where 100 is the population average

William took the test at his school as part of an initiative run by computer science teacher Jonathan Miller.

Jonathan said: “All of the students who took part in the test did incredibly well and did themselves and the school proud, the fact that William managed to achieve the highest possible score really is the icing on the cake and shows the amazing calibre of students that we have here at Sir Thomas Boteler. 

“It is astonishing to think that we have at least two students who have IQs higher than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawkins (160)!”

William’s test result comes after a successful year that saw him sit upon the TCAT Youth Parliament and achieve highly commended in the Warrington Guardian Education Awards.
