Tewkesbury Academy sixth form chemists shine at Royal Society of Chemistry Olympiad

Four Tewkesbury Academy sixth form chemists took part in the Royal Society of Chemistry Olympiad.

The UK Chemistry Olympiad is a challenging competition open to all secondary schools and colleges across the British Isles.

Nearly 15,000 students took part in this year’s contest, which is designed to showcase the nation’s brightest young minds in chemistry.

Against strong competition, William Redfern and Barnabey Jones showed their skills and knowledge to earn a Bronze certificate, placing them in the top 37% of the 15,000 who entered.

Not far behind were Lucy Evetts and Ava Baker, who narrowly missed the Bronze certificate by just a few points.

Dr Alice Kennedy, Director of Science at Tewkesbury Academy, said: “We are immensely proud of our students’ achievements in the Royal Society of Chemistry Olympiad. Their success reflects not only their individual brilliance but also the supportive and nurturing environment fostered here at Tewkesbury Academy. Congratulations to William, Barnabey, Lucy, and Ava for their remarkable performance.”
