Record number of Gold Awards

Royal Society of Biology

The Biology Intermediate Olympiad is an on-line competition for pupils studying Biology in their Lower Sixth year. The competition is run by the Royal Society of Biology and many schools take part across the country. Pupils take an hour-long assessment, which covers aspects of their first year A Level course as well as testing broader knowledge.

This year fourteen Lower Sixth chose to take part. It was at a busy time of year for them, straight after their exams and in the middle of Futures Week.

Head of Biology Mrs Metcalf said they achieved a very pleasing set of results and a record number of Gold Awards.

“Well done to all who entered the competition,” she said.

Daniella Monger was commended. Harry Hayter, Anna Preece and Jessica Wright were highly commended. Hope Evans achieved a Bronze Award whilst Jake Allman, Oliver Bates and Charlie Hayman scooped Silver.

Particular congratulations to Phoebe Day, Patrick Gilbert, Robert Stoyle and Charlie Mayall (best in school) for achieving a Gold Award.
