Lancing Student achieves highest award at the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge 2017


Well done to Russell W, Lower Sixth, who has achieved the highest award, the Roentgenium, in this year’s Cambridge Chemistry Challenge. An outstanding result which places Russell in the top 0.78% of over 7,000 students attending the competition this year. Russell has been invited to a residential Chemistry camp at the University of Cambridge during the summer break, a tremendous opportunity to meet other first-rate students and to hone his chemistry skills.

Dr John Herbert, Deputy Head, says: "A truly excellent performance and huge credit not only to Russell but to everyone in the Chemistry department who helped and supported him over the years. This is an excellent platform from which to move towards a university Chemistry application."
