Our Upper Sixth students who took part in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge received their certificates. The competition is open to students studying in the UK and is run by Cambridge University. Students take the exam in college in the form of a 90-minute written paper.

The competition aims to stretch and challenge students with an interest in chemistry. An experienced team designs the challenge which takes students significantly beyond the syllabus, encouraging them to think about science in the way they would at university. Those students with the highest marks in the exam receive certificates.

Fifty seven of our students sat the exam. Thirty eight of them received certificates with two achieving gold certificates, nine achieving silver and twenty seven achieving bronze. Well done to all the students who took part.
