Cambridge Chemistry Challenge

Cambridge Chemistry Challenge

On Monday 20th June, nine of our year 12s took the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge which is designed to be accessible to Year 12 students but takes them significantly beyond the syllabus and encourages them to think about science in the way they would at university.

Over half of our students got marks that put them in the top 20% of all pupils who took the challenge. Three pupils, Peter Methley, Daniel Hart and Joseph Jollans achieved over 50% which was good enough to be sent off to Cambridge to be moderated, placing them in the top 8% of the country.

This year Peter Methley achieved the highest award of Roentgenium which places him in the top 55 students out of 7229 students who entered. He has now been invited to an all-expenses paid residential Chemistry camp at the University of Cambridge at the end of August.

Congratulations to Peter for becoming the first Tommie's student to achieve the Roentgenium award.
