Success For Pupils In The Senior And Intermediate Physics Challenges

11 Mar

At the end of January, 11 Lower Sixth students took part in the online Senior Physics Challenge set by the University of Oxford’s British Physics Olympiad team.

Across the country, almost 6,000 pupils from 297 schools participated in the competition, where 40 tricky multiple-choice questions are answered on a variety of Physics topics within a 50-minute time limit.

Congratulations go to: Joseph Baker, Ruby Clark, Leo Flannery, Jack Fleming, Louise Gambling, Seb Hume-Chignell, Ollie Hutton, Blessing Katanda, Giorgio Kleinmann and Anjola Okusanya, who all achieved a Bronze certificate. Special mentions to Leo, Jack, Ollie and Anjola, who were just one mark off a Silver certificate.

Then, 44 Year 11 pupils took part in the online Intermediate Physics Challenge, which also asks a series of challenging multiple-choice questions within a time limit. Just over 5,000 young physicists from 171 schools participated. Congratulations to all the Princethorpe pupils who took part but in particular to Max Phillips-Gore and Louis Yuen, (pictured) who both received a Gold certificate, the highest achievable award.
