Chemistry Olympiad

In early March, 20 Sixth Form Chemists took part in the annual International Chemistry Olympiad, now in its 49th year. Pupils sat a two and a half hour paper in which they answered questions ranging from the chemistry of volcanoes to the use of titanium alloys in artificial hips. Our pupils really enjoyed tackling these challenging questions and pitting their wits against over 6,000 of the best chemistry students in the country.

Special congratulations go to Russell W for achieving a Gold Award and in doing so finishing in the top 3% of entrants to this year’s competition.
