Pupils Celebrate Science And Maths Olympiad Success

SENIOR PUPILS HAVE BEEN CELEBRATING SOME OUTSTANDING RESULTS IN VARIOUS NATIONAL SCIENTIFIC OLYMPIADS OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS.

Science and Maths teaching at Christ College continues to raise the bar and along with some incredibly talented pupils produce excellent results.

This year’s round of National Scientific and Maths Olympiads have resulted in a raft of certificates and medals for some of our senior pupils.

In Physics, all five of the Lower Sixth pupils who entered were awarded medals. Nationally, the awards were GOLD: 4.6% of the entry, SILVER: 11.3% of the entry, BRONZE: 13.8% of the national entry. Over 3000 of the best Lower Sixth Physicists sat the paper and 51% did not achieve a medal of any description. Pride of place goes to H Kanedo who achieved Gold with K Zhao and H Kuhn achieving Silver. A Airede and A Brzosko achieved Bronze 1 awards. A huge achievement that bodes well for the future!

In Biology, A Airede achieved Silver, M Catterall achieved Bronze (1 mark off Silver), H Roberts achieved Bronze (2 marks off Silver) and A Tarpey received a Commended certificate.

In Chemistry, H Kaneda achieved Silver (3 marks off Gold), T Kiss achieved Silver (4 marks off Gold), A Brzosko achieved Silver and A Airede achieved Bronze (1 mark off Silver).

In Maths, H Kenada, K Zhao and Y Xie all received medals.

The strength and depth in Science, Maths and Further Maths continues on the back of excellent A Level results in 2016 which saw 79% of the Maths and Further Maths results at A* or A grades and 82% of Physics results at A* or A. Well done all concerned and keep up the good work!
