Academic competitions and Olympiads are a key component of studying at NatMatSci. All students are entered into competitions relevant to their age, abilities and subject specialisms. Our students consistently perform very well in these competitions, with several proceeding to second & third rounds. We have had some outstanding successes in the last 2 years.
Our four Roentgenium 2018 winners were invited to a residential camp at St. Catherine’s College and Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. Rick and Robbie currently have offers for Oxford and Cambridge for 2019.
