Computing is now favourite school subject, Maths comes in at number 2

Computing is now the favourite school subject in the UK, replacing English.

Nearly one in four (24 per cent) children aged between six and 12 years old said that computing and technology are the subjects that they enjoy the most, while the most popular subject among their parents was English, with 21 per cent of parents favouring this during their school days, the study for Barclays found.

Maths also happened to be the second most popular subject among the children surveyed, with 19 per cent citing it as their favourite.
