Results of the Upper 4 Physics Olympiad Are In!

25 June 2024

13 U4 pupils recently took part in the online British Physics Olympiad Year 7/8 Physics Challenge - the first year that this new competition has taken place. 

Over 3500 pupils participated from 55 schools across the UK and overseas.  The test comprised two 25-minute sets of multiple-choice questions about physics ideas and problem solving,  which aimed to encourage wider reading and interest in the subject and to provide an opportunity for pupils to take part in a national physics competition and to develop their confidence in the subject.

Our pupils performed exceptionally strongly, obtaining 11 Gold and 2 Silver awards. Well done to all those who took part!
