Pupil Achieved a Gold Medal

Congratulations to Second Year Specialist Edward Henderson (B) who achieved a rare Gold medal putting him in the top 6.7% of a very tough field in the British Biology Olympiad.

The British Biology Olympiad is a national competition for sixth form Biologists open to pupils in Year 12 and Year 13. Pupils sit two on line papers in competition with 7,800 of the country’s sharpest biological brains in Long Quarter (spring term).  The questions test a wide range of biological skills and knowledge going considerably beyond what pupils will have encountered in the classroom. 

It is particularly impressive for First Year Specialists (Year12) to get a medal, so congratulations go to Iona Harrison (G) – Silver, Emily Bagley (G) - Bronze, Aidan Chan (W) - Bronze, and Serena Johnson (G) - Bronze.   

There were also a number of Highly Commended First Year Specialists, some close to a Bronze who have also done very well indeed.
