Story posted on

EIGHTEEN Year 11 students from Frome College took part in the British Physics Olympiad GCSE Physics Challenge Competition. 

The college reports, “This competition is run through the University of Oxford and targets the most able physicists across the country, although students from across the world are also permitted to enter. 

“Joe Coles, Charlie Cox, Nathan Cummings, Zach Durojaye, Kallum Gulliver, Adam Sheppard, Robert Trowbridge and Evan Williams, all received a ‘Commendation’. Ethan Casey, Sam Evans, Chris Haines and Baxter Raithby took home a ‘Bronze 2 Award’ – placing them in the top 48% of participants. 

“Brian Kendall, Tom Leigh and Eve Lindley performed in the top 31% of students and achieved a ‘Bronze 1 Award’. Performing in the top 16% of students, Adam Baker and Irek Swierczynski received ‘Silver Awards’, and Stephanie Verwey performed outstandingly well, achieving a ‘Gold Award’, which places her in the top 5% of all the participants.

“This year, less than 0.3% of the UK Year 11 students took part in the competition, so our Frome College physicists have been very successful indeed; they should be extremely proud of the awards they have achieved!”
