Chemistry Achievement

On Saturday 19th January, a team of four students travelled to the University of Derby to take part in the regional final of the Top of the Bench Chemistry competition.

The students had to complete a 30 minute written quiz. This was followed by a challenging practical activity which involved an evaluation of different chemical stabilisers, something that the students would not have come across in their normal lessons. While the tasks were being assessed, we were treated to a show of different chemical reactions by staff at the University. When it came to the announcement of the results, we were informed that the team had come a highly creditable third place.

Well done to: Zachary Lomas (11S) Jacob Haseldine (10Y) Yash Kainth (9G) Erica Lavender (9P) for working so well as a team, and giving up their Saturday morning to take part. We are already looking forward to next year’s competition.
