Norwich School Chemists Receive Bronze, Silver and Gold in the Royal Society of Chemistry Olympiad

12 April 2019

Six Norwich School pupils have been awarded top certificates in a national Chemistry competition. 

The Royal Society of Chemistry Olympiad is an annual competition open to post-16 pupils studying A Level Chemistry. The event is recognised as the toughest Chemistry competition available to school-aged pupils and tests their problem-solving skills, chemical intuition and resilience.

Congratulations go to pupils awarded certificates:

Bronze - James Pearson (L6R)

Silver - Tom Cheung (U6S), Henry Lee (U6C), Walter Buttery (U6B)

Gold - William Cheng (L6V), Harry Peachment (U6E)

Special mention goes to James Pearson and William Cheng. The competition is designed for Upper Sixth pupils coming to the end of their A Level studies. It is therefore rare for any Lower Sixth student to win an award, and rarer to find two in the same school. 

All Lower Sixth Chemistry pupils will have the opportunity to challenge their classmates in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge which takes place next term.
