Olympiad glory

Bright young physicists from Oswestry School have achieved some outstanding results in the British Physics Olympiad Challenge. These highly demanding tests, set by Oxford University, are designed to separate out A* candidates by stretching and challenging even the most gifted. The AS Challenge is an exciting opportunity for students to stretch their lateral thinking skills and apply fundamental physical principles to novel situations. Star pupil Max Clarke, who received a gold award in last year’s GCSE paper, excelled in the AS Challenge by again achieving a gold award, putting him in the top 100 students in the country. In the same paper Roly Hancock received a silver award while Teodora Nănescu and Adelina Crecian each won commendations.
