Ten Year 10 students at Charters School in Sunningdale have taken part in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge, a competition which aims to stretch and challenge students interested in chemistry. The competition is designed to be accessible to Year 12 students, taking them significantly beyond the syllabus and encouraging them to think about science in the way they would at university.

Mrs Julie Goodley, Subject Leader for Chemistry said, “These students have worked in their own time and after school to learn the A Level specification to enable them to take part in this competition. It is a remarkable achievement that they are able to compete at this level and it demonstrates their resilience and diligence.  One student, Edward Rivers, achieved a silver certificate, placing him in the top 10% nationally.  This accomplishment, extraordinary in its own right, is even more impressive when taking into account that Edward is only in Year 10.”
