Five Year 10 Pupils Awarded Gold In The Junior Physics Challenge
This year, 62 Year 10 pupils competed in the British Physics Olympiad Junior Challenge, an online competition where pupils answer multiple-choice questions across two tests in just 50 minutes.
The Junior Physics Challenge is designed to engage and stretch pupils by offering a range of problems to solve. It allows pupils to apply their curriculum knowledge of physics practically, while taking part in a competition at a national level. It is the first opportunity GCSE pupils have to participate in a British Physics Olympiad event.
Pupils' results were, once again, excellent this year, so a huge well done to all who took part. Particular congratulations go to Zach Hawkins who was the top performing pupil from the school, Zach achieved a Gold certificate, along with Anna Johnson, Jesse Esler, Amelia Chard and Theo Sparkes. Pupils at the College were also awarded 14 Silver, 41 Bronze and two Commendation certificates.
Dan Lee, Head of Physics, said, "Congratulations to all the participants, it was great to see our Year 10 pupils engaging with such enthusiasm in the Junior Physics Challenge."
