The British Physics Olympiad (BPhO) is an annual competition set by a group based at Oxford University. It is designed to allow the most talented physics students studying in the UK to demonstrate their skills by solving extremely challenging problems, using both physics which they have already studied and additional information which is provided to them.
The competition is set at an extremely high level, with only the top physics students at A-level entering in most schools. Achieving any award is a genuine achievement, and indicates that a student is able to work at a more advanced level than is generally required for A-level exams.
Our results this year were outstanding.
🏆🏆 2 students (Nam-Oon and Ploy) achieved Top Gold Awards, placing them at the very top of all entries to the competition. Not many Top Gold Awards are given out!
🥇🥇🥇 3 students (New, Nat, Ivan) achieved Gold Awards, a fantastic achievement
🥈🥈 2 students (Albert and Angel) achieved Silver Awards.
🥉🥉🥉🥉🥉🥉🥉🥉🥉🥉10 further students in Years 1 and 2 achieved Bronze Awards
These phenomenal results demonstrate the excellence of many of our students, and the depth of talent which is present in our college. Our students have achieved a much better tally of Awards than most much larger schools achieve.
We offer our special congratulations to Angel, who is a year younger than the vast majority of students entering Round 1. Well done!
