Multiple Perse scientists amongst the best in the country once again
26 Mar 2012
Perse students have consistently performed outstandingly in all three of the Science Olympiads in recent years and this year our representation at the top level was barely matched by any other school. Our students achieved 18 gold awards, putting them in the top 50 to 200 students nationally (depending on subject), 15 silver awards and 13 bronze awards.
Particular congratulations to:
- Ivo Dawkins, Sam Johnson, Tom Myers, Krish Patel and Luke Perera for achieving two gold awards each.
- Luke Perera for coming in the top 16 nationally in Biology – through to the next round.
- Sam Johnson for coming in the top 25 nationally in Chemistry – through to the next round.
Last year we believe we achieved the most awards of any school in the UK and only two schools achieved more gold awards than us. This year we have increased our number of gold awards from six to ten, a feat only beaten by one school.
- The ten students who achieved gold awards: Sam Johnson, Ivo Dawkins, William Raynaud, Edward Lam, Luke Perera, Thomas Myers, Krish Patel, Dom Kite, Austen Bolitho and Robert Cronshaw
- Sam Johnson for coming in the top 25 nationally and getting through to the second selection round
- All the Lower Sixth students who achieved awards (1 silver and 5 bronzes) a quite exceptional achievement after only a few months of A-level study.
We had four students achieving gold awards (top 100 in the country) – Ivo Dawkins, Peter Fryers, Sam Johnson and Tom Myers.
Congratulations to Luke Perera who has reached the final 16 out of nearly 4000 students who entered round 1 of the Biology Olympiad.
