Sixth Form Girls Rise to Chemistry Challenge

Year 12 students from Bolton School Girls’ Division have enjoyed success at the recent Cambridge Lower Sixth Challenge in Chemistry. The event aims to stretch and challenge students interested in the subject and provides an excellent experience for anyone considering taking their studies further. 

Mrs Styler, Head of Chemistry in the Girls’ Division, congratulated the girls: “Well done to all twenty girls from Year 12 who took part in this year’s competition but in particular to Viola Hilton, Fatima Naeem and Nina Simon who achieved a copper award and to Millie Wood who achieved a silver award.” 

Set by an experienced team of teachers and university chemists, the challenge is designed to be accessible to Year 12 students but to take them significantly beyond the syllabus and to encourage them to think about science in the way they would at university.
