Student Success In The 2023 Cambridge University Chemistry Challenge
The College's Sixth Form Chemists took on the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge.
Designed to stretch and test students in Chemistry, the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge takes sixth formers significantly beyond the syllabus and encourages them to think about science in the way they would at university.
This summer, our Lower Sixth chemists took part in this well-respected Challenge. They prepared themselves for the competition by attending a weekly Cambridge Chemistry Challenge co-curricular club to develop their critical problem-solving skills, creative thinking, and to test their knowledge in real-world situations.
All the students who took part were awarded certificates. Special mentions go to Joseph Newborough who was awarded a Gold certificate and Amy Hogg and Rahul Samra who both received Silver certificates. Congratulations also go to Emma Sarkies, Carys Nicolle, Radley Evans, Lola Ashley, Guy Dawkins and Arjay Tejura who were awarded Copper, Merit and Participation certificates. All our College chemists faced tough national competition and we congratulate them on the great resilience they demonstrated.
