Congratulations to Henley College students who have received Cooper Awards in this year’s Cambridge Chemistry Challenge.
Six Henley College students participated in the 2017 Cambridge Chemistry Challenge for Lower Sixth (Year 12). Set by an experienced team of educators and university chemists, this competition takes chemistry students significantly beyond the syllabus and encourages them to think about science in the way they would at University. Over 7000 students from 510 schools entered the challenge with questions combining familiar and completely new material with a range of different chemistry covered. The Cooper Certificate, reflecting a reasonable grasp of A Level material and the ability to apply this knowledge to novel problems, was awarded to 36% of entrants.
Chemistry teachers Colin Suttie and Andy Sutton supported our students with this stretch and challenge activity and were delighted with student achievement. They commended everyone who participated and presented Award Certificates to Kate Church, Isabelle Wood, Andrew Oakley, Finlay Morris, Romilly Hryczanek and Stephanie Batten.
