We were very proud of all 44 of our 1st year Biology students who entered the Royal Society of Biology Intermediate Biology Olympiad on June 5th. The annual events was naturally a little bit different this year, as the whole Olympiad was delivered online for the first time, with students completing challenge from home, with Lauren Plews, Andrew Elliott and Mike Solomon supervising the students in a live Microsoft Teams session.
As with previous years our students distinguished themselves with 3 silver awards (one of which was one mark off a gold) and 3 bronze awards. In addition 5 students were commended and 2 highly commended for their work.
Well done to Lucy Atkin, Grace Hanson and Tyler Sydney for winning Silver, and Caitlyn Bryne, Joseph Cleghorn and Harry Watson for winning Bronze medals at the Olympiad.
