2018 Chemistry Olympiad Success!

Chemistry Olympiad Success 2018

This year we had a number of enthusiastic Year 12 and 13 students taking part in the competition, which involved them completing a two-hour written exam paper. The questions posed often stimulate much debate, and enthusiasm for, chemistry – raising awareness of what the subject is all about. It provides a good opportunity to develop some of the skills required for study at university and beyond.

We are extremely pleased with the results that the students have achieved: Clara S, and Nimisha S both achieved a Silver Award; Amy L, Phoebe M, Shriya P, Eleanor C, Anum C, and Fiona S all achieved a Bronze Award. Well done and congratulations to them!
