Girls from Year 11 and 13 have achieved awards for their knowledge and understanding of biology.
Eleven of our Year 13 students took part in The Intermediate British Biology Olympiad in the summer, which is a competition that challenges and stimulates students with an interest in Biology to expand and extend their talents. It enables students to be rewarded and recognised for demonstrating their knowledge and understanding of a diverse range of biological interests.
It is hoped that competing in the Olympiad, which is open to students around the world, will encourage students to continue their study beyond A-level. Over 7000 students took part this year so the competition was tough.
Earlier in the year our Year 11 pupils took part in the British Biology Challenge which enables GCSE pupils to show their extensive knowledge in a wide range of contexts.
