Science Olympiad Success

By Sue Sabec, Chemistry Dept., 11 May 2016

Well done to all of our recent Biology and Chemistry Olympiad Award winners. The exams are not on recall and so revision cannot help - it is all down to ability in analysis and deduction.This year's exams were tougher than ever and so we are thrilled to get so many medals. On top of this, two AS Physics students, Jack Rimmington and Jamie Leppard, recently achieved “Silver Awards” in the prestigious AS Physics Olympiad that is organised by Oxford University.  This places them in the top 10% of Physics Students in the UK -  well done!
