BPhO Engagement Across Upper Years Yields Fantastic Results!
Caterham has achieved record results in the British Physics Olympiad 2022 with record numbers of physicists volunteering to take part. Aimed predominantly at those in Upper Sixth, the BPhO is notoriously challenging, yet 50 Caterham pupils across all years from Fifth Year to the Sixth Form volunteered to take part in the gruelling three hour-long competition. 16 Bronzes, five Silvers, one Gold and two Top Gold medals were achieved.
A particular mention must go to Alex M and Thomas C in Upper Sixth for achieving Top Gold, placing them in the top 180 of the 3000+ participants and making them eligible for the even more formidable Round Two paper in February. A second special mention must also go to our Fifth Year pupils who took part – this is no mean feat for those tackling A Level physics, so getting stuck into questions on thermal coefficients of metals, gravitational forces on Jovian moons and the energetics of radioactive decay is particularly impressive!Back to all news
