Congratulations to two of our Sixth Form students who have recently been awarded a Bronze Certificate from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).
Eva Anderson and Declan Walmsley from Year 13, took part in the RSC’s ‘Chemistry Olympiad’ last term. They had to sit two exams, each lasting one hour. The exams are designed to stretch and challenge the students, and get them to apply their knowledge and understanding in a different context.
The Chemistry Olympiad is the leading chemistry competition for students in secondary education across the UK.
Run annually, the Olympiad is an opportunity for teachers to challenge their chemistry students, helping them to develop creative thinking, and apply their existing knowledge in new and interesting contexts.
Mrs Kirkup, Science Teacher at St Benedict’s commented:
“Two of our Sixth Form students participated in the RSC Chemistry Olympiad this year. Eva and Declan found the competition challenging and were over the moon to find out that they have received a bronze certificate.”
