March saw lower sixth A Level and IB chemistry students taking part in the Royal Society of Chemistry's annual 'Chemistry Olympiad' competition.
The Chemistry Olympiad is the leading chemistry competition for students in secondary education across the UK.
Run annually, the Olympiad is an opportunity for teachers to challenge their chemistry students, helping them to develop creative thinking, and apply their existing knowledge in new and interesting contexts. For students it as an opportunity to develop their thinking and problem solving skills, and to test their existing knowledge of chemistry in new, real-world situations.
After two rigorous written papers Holly Earl, Jacob Turner and Jailei Ruan all achieved a bronze certificate with Isabella Hendricks achieving a silver certificate. It was a fantastic achievement for all of the students who participated and I look forward to celebrating future success in next year's competition.
