Four, Year 13 students recently took part in the 49th Chemistry Olympiad competition organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The competition is aimed to stretch and challenge Post-16 Chemistry students by testing their chemical knowledge. Students are awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze on their marks and we are very pleased to announce that both Harriet Frost and Francesca Li received Bronze, Jake Ejraee received a Silver award and Nicole Mitchell a Gold. A fantastic result all round.

Nicole’s score was one of the highest in the country and she will now go forward to the next round which involves a selection weekend combining both theoretical and practical testing which is held at the University of Cambridge.
