Sixth Form chemists enjoy Olympiad success

Two Sixth form students stood outside the old entrance of the RGS

Last month, seven of our Sixth Form students took part in the UK Chemistry Olympiad.  

The students completed a challenging two hour paper, and to achieve certification is a superb achievement - with only 9% of total entries achieving Gold, including RGS student, Cayman Osei-Bonsai. 

Designed to challenge and inspire, the UK Chemistry Olympiad is the leading chemistry competition for students in secondary education across the British Isles. This enriching experience is a unique opportunity for students to push themselves further and excel in the chemistry field. 

Budding chemists develop critical problem-solving skills, learn to think more creatively and get a chance to test their knowledge in new, real-world situations. 

Speaking about the success, Head of Chemistry, Natalie Wright, said: "These really are fantastic results, particularly for the Year 12 students, as the competition is aimed at Year 13. Well done to all the students for their hard work!"
