Perse students go for gold in Physics Olympiad
2 Apr 2014
We are pleased to announce that six Perse students won Gold Awards in the recent Physics Olympiad. Stuart Knowles, Nick Leach, Nick Taylor, Nick Aldridge, Jamie Bamber and William Drake all received these awards, which place them in the top 150 in the country – a record for The Perse. Jamie and William are in the Lower Sixth, and so this is a particularly notable achievement – one that no Perse student has achieved before. Both Stuart and Nick came in the top 50 and qualified for Round 2 of the Olympiad, where they received Commendations for their achievements.
We have also had great success lower down the School, with six Lower Sixth students achieving Gold Awards in the AS Physics Challenge, and 17 students achieving Gold Awards in the GCSE Physics Challenge – 15 from Year 11 and 2 from Year 10. These are record achievements for The Perse.
Well done to all who took part!
