Excellent Achievements in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge
In the Trinity term, a group of Lower Sixth Chemistry students took part in the annual Cambridge Chemistry Challenge. This competition aims to challenge and assess the skills of Sixth Form Chemists from all over the country, helping them bridge the gap between A Level and University level studies.
The students faced tough problem-solving questions that covered topics like the formal charge of molecules, the synthesis of an active ingredient used to treat Athletes’ foot, and the Chemistry of a metalloid called Bismuth.
We are delighted to announce the achievements of our students in this national competition:
Silver Awards: Evie Smith, George Laney, Ethan Stubbs
Copper Awards: Catherine Broadbent, Charlie Timmington, Cerys Marsay-Jones
Congratulations to these students for their hard work and impressive performance in Chemistry, you should all be proud. Well done!
Dr Will Stephen, Teacher of Chemistry
