In January, despite the challenges of lockdown 28 students took part in a remotely invigilated Chemistry Olympiad paper after school. The Olympiad is designed to challenge and inspire students and is the leading Chemistry competition in secondary education across the UK. Students taking part have an enriching opportunity to push themselves further in the Chemistry field.
14 Whitgift students achieved an award at either Bronze or Silver level and were given their certificates just before the Easter holidays. The School would like to congratulate all the students for participating in what is a very rigorous and challenging competition.
Head of Chemistry, Miss Herring commented, “With the competition being primarily aimed at Upper Sixth students it was excellent to see half of the awards being won by students in the Lower Sixth after just a term of study.”
