Biology Challenge stimulates students’ curiosity for the natural world and encourages them to take an interest in biology outside of school.
Around 52 Forest School students in Year 9 and 10 took part this year during British Science Week 2018 (9th-18th March).
The competition consists of two, twenty-five-minute multiple choice papers to be taken online under staff supervised exam conditions.
Questions are set on the school curriculum, but the competition also rewards those students whose knowledge of the subject has been increased by reading books and magazines, watching natural history programmes, taking notice of the news media for items of biological interest, and are generally aware of our natural flora and fauna.
The results of the competition have just been announced and our pupils have achieved 6 Gold, 10 Silver and 15 Bronze awards.
Gold – Ava Canteenwala, Daniel Molyneaux, Ella Hayden, Jonathan Young, William Telling, Meigan Teo
Silver – Ahmed Gilani, Arthur Tucker, Finn Wilson, Hasan Ahmed, Mysha Ali, Petra Webb, Rhys Edwards, Harry Wren, Thomas Dunn, Will Headlam
Bronze – Alexander Adolphus, Ali Shah, Angharad Stables, Cameron Keegan, Eaman Javid, Ellin Patel, George Evropov, Hari Gautama, Jude Mansoor-Lloyd, Maxwell Catmur, Preeya Kaushal, Rhea-Anoushka Vyas, Thierry Popat, , Trinity Batt, and Ella TaylorBack to all news
