Olympiad Stars

Barton Peveril Sixth Form College students Garam Lee and Dougie Howells have achieved a remarkable accomplishment that placed them at the top in the Physics Olympiad nationwide, placing them among the top 1% of participants.

The British Physics Olympiad is a series of ten competitions in the UK designed to challenge and identify the country’s most talented physics students.  

The students showcased their outstanding skills in the first round, ranking among the top 125 students out of over 3000 participants. Garam and Dougie’s dedication and talent propelled them further in the second round, where they emerged among the top 35 of the initial 125, a testament to their abilities.

The British Physics Olympiad (BPhO) has recognised Dougie Howells and Garam Lee’s exceptional achievement and Dougie will be attending Oxford Training Camp at the Department of Physics, University of Oxford. Meanwhile, Garam will be dedicating his time to participating in the British Informatics Olympiad (Computer Science Competition) training camp over the Easter break.

In addition to the students’ performance in the Physics Olympiad, Dougie and Garam previously secured top marks in the Maths Olympiad held in November last year. Furthermore, both students have received offers to study Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, Garam at Trinity College and Dougie at Clare College.

The Barton Peveril students’ exemplary achievements serve as an inspiration to aspiring young scientists and mathematicians across the nation.
