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!"
