Celebrating success: British Biology Challenge achievements
We are thrilled to extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the students who participated in this year's British Biology Challenge! With 45,400 students participating worldwide, it's truly remarkable to see the dedication and enthusiasm displayed by our students.
Out of this vast pool of talent, we are immensely proud to announce that our school produced some outstanding results. A total of 7 students have been awarded gold medals, a testament to their exceptional knowledge and commitment to the field of biology. This places them among the top 5% of participants worldwide, an achievement worthy of admiration.

Furthermore, we applaud the 11 students who earned silver medals, the 9 students who secured bronze medals, the 8 students who received highly commended certificates, and the 8 students who received commended certificates. Each of these recognitions reflects a level of understanding and proficiency in biology that warrants recognition.

We would like to give special recognition to Emma Year 10 for achieving the highest mark within our school. Her dedication and hard work have truly paid off, setting a remarkable example for her peers. Additionally, we congratulate Seren for achieving the highest mark in Year 9, showcasing her exceptional talent and commitment to excellence.

A noteworthy mention goes out to all Year 9 students who participated, as a large number of the questions in the challenge were linked to Year 10 knowledge. This demonstrates their ability to perform well above the expectations of their year group, showcasing their depth of understanding and passion for the subject.

These achievements not only reflect the caliber of our students but also highlight the dedication of our teachers who have nurtured and supported their growth in the field of biology. We are immensely proud of each and every student who participated and commend them for their passion for science and their dedication to academic excellence.

As a school community, let us continue to foster a love for learning and support one another in our academic pursuits. Once again, congratulations to all our British Biology Challenge participants for their outstanding achievements!
