Students have received their results from the Chemistry Olympiad that they sat remotely at the end of January – with a record-breaking six golds being awarded to Trinity students.
Upper Sixth students Theo Flanagan, Krish Oza, Krishan Shah, Daniel Warren and Aly Ramsey were all awarded gold, as was Lower Sixth student, Aman De Silva.
Meanwhile silver was awarded to Tom Leigh and Siv Thillainathan in Upper Sixth, with four Lower Sixth students receiving this impressive accolade: Josh Albuquerque, Matthew Gillam, Joel Cuttle and Josh Todd.
Congratulations to the 11 students who were also awarded bronze: Sam Tilley, Dan Moore Prempeh, Nick Challier, Mahdeia Hidary, Yash Shetty, Anand Clarke, Kieran Satheesan, Rosemary Goodall, Morgan Lee, Edward Pauling and Emily Howes.
Yaadhavan Thevathas, Ari Yad, Karim Yoosafaah and Alice Bradshaw also received certificates of participation.
Designed to challenge and inspire, the UK Chemistry Olympiad is the leading chemistry competition for students in secondary education across Britain. It is run by the Royal Society of Chemistry and gives students the opportunity to push themselves further and excel in their study.
The competition is aimed at Upper Sixth students, so for Lower Sixth students to achieve so highly is particularly impressive. Well done to all involved!
“There are some particularly impressive grades amongst the Lower Sixth which should help in their university applications."
Dr Robinson, Head of Chemistry
