Gold Success in Chemistry Olympiad

Congratulations to Alex Rowley in the Upper Sixth who obtained a Gold award in the 51st annual Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Olympiad 2019.

The Chemistry Olympiad is the leading Chemistry competition for students in secondary education across the UK. It is a rigorous assessment and to obtain a Gold award, students need to obtain more than 28 marks out of 80. Although this seems low, the paper is very challenging and requires students to apply their Chemistry in complex situations above the A Level or IB Diploma specification.
