Awards for pupils in the British Physics Olympiad
Two A2 pupils took part in the British Physics Olympiad last term, achieving fantastic results
Rory H and George D entered the British Physics Olympiad at the end of the autumn term. Both pupils had taken part in the Physics Challenges that lead up to this in B, A3 and A2 and have done extremely well to reach the standard required for the competition at this level. Only about 1,800 pupils take part across the UK!
They both performed superbly, with Rory achieving the Bronze II award, placing him in the top 48% of candidates that entered (top 480 physicists in the UK). George achieved the Gold award, placing him in the top 9% of candidates that entered (top 160 physicists in the UK!) and is the first pupil to achieve a Gold award at Bryanston in a very long time.
I am sure that both pupils will make very fine scientists/engineers in the future. They have certainly proved that they are developing superb problem solving skills as physicists.
Later this term, some of our budding B and A3 physicists will be taking part in the Physics Challenge, and I am sure we will have more successes to celebrate then. We wish them the very best of luck.
