In March, the 3rd and 4th Year pupils sat a Biology Challenge, a worldwide competition consisting of two 25 minute papers set by the Royal Society of Biology.
The questions were based on the school curriculum, but the competition also rewards those students whose knowledge of the subject has been increased by reading books and magazines, watching natural history programmes, taking notice of the news media for items of biological interest, and are generally aware of our natural flora and fauna.
Our pupils did exceptionally well, with a special mention to Soumya, Sam and Oliver for achieving an incredible Gold Award.
Thomas, Max, Emily, Robert, Maya, Hari, Jack, Leyla, Anna, Ashley, Christopher, Ben, Aimee, Henry, Kaja and Morgan achieved a Silver Award and the Bronze Awards were received by Alex, Ollie, Adam, George, Joanna, Lara, Sam, Freddy, Mckayla, Rudy, Roland, Rose, Hamish, Oliver, Heidi, Hannah, Elspeth, Thomas, Amari, Jay and Tom.
Furthermore, our pupils received 82 Highly Commended and Commended results – an amazing achievement – well done to you all!
