Barton Peveril Sixth Form College Chemistry students were successful in this year’s Cambridge Chemistry Challenge, a national competition that challenges students to expand their knowledge of Chemistry beyond the curriculum.
The students were awarded for their work in the annual competition, which tasks students with sitting a complex exam that stretches their knowledge beyond the materials covered on the A Level syllabus.
In total, students from the College earned two Gold, ten Silver and seven Copper Awards for their efforts in the Challenge:
Cheuk Hei Sung and Dan Williams received Gold Awards; Alex Evans, Neveah Arnold, Sophie Chandler, Bradley Conlon, Peter Evans, Issac Lai, Millie Smith, Hardeep Taak, Andrew Trip, and Maddie Middleton all received Silver Awards; and Shamine Botlho Monteiro, Charlie Bryant, Kascey Bunney, Hayley Driver, Elizabeth Ernsberger, Katie Guy, Farah Ibrahim, and Charlie Valvona each earned Copper Awards.
“Significantly beyond the syllabus”
Speaking on the student successes, Barton Peveril Sixth Form College Subject Leader for Chemistry, Andrew Penson, said:
‘The competition aimed to stretch and challenge students interested in chemistry, and provided an excellent experience for anyone considering taking their studies further. Students independently prepared for this test which took them significantly beyond the syllabus and encouraged them to think about science in the way they would at university.’
