Brampton College is always pleased to recognise student success and already this year we have a lot to celebrate! Our students have just finished their mocks and many of them are making their final choices for university. So far, our leavers have over 572 offers to consider and 330 of these are from Russell group universities.
In our recent assembly we were delighted to distribute awards given to our students for the Biology, Chemistry and Physics Olympiads as well as the UK Mathematics challenge.
These Olympiads are longstanding competitions, for example the British Physics Olympiad (BPhO) has run for 25 years and is entered annually by over 1,600 talented young physicists. The examination-based competition has a dual purpose: to challenge and reward the best physicists in British schools and to select the UK Physics Team for competition at international level. Congratulations to our students for being part of this cohort.
The British Biology Olympiad challenges and stimulates students with an interest in Biology to expand and extend their talents. It enables students to demonstrate their knowledge and to be suitably rewarded and publicly recognised by the award of medals, certificates and other prizes. It is hoped that competing in the Olympiad will encourage students already interested in this valuable, wide-ranging and rewarding subject to continue their study beyond A level. All medal winners will be invited to an awards ceremony at the Royal Institution on Thursday 7th July.
Joyce Kam won silver awards in both Biology and Chemistry Olympiads. An amazing achievement!
