Chemistry Challenge Success


Hampton’s Chemists are celebrating excellent results in this year’s Cambridge University Chemistry Challenge. Entered by 7000 Lower Sixth pupils across the country, the 90-minute examination is notoriously tough. This year’s Hampton chemists did exceptionally well, with eleven boys achieving awards. One Hamptonian ranked in the top 60 and five boys were awarded Golds.

Armaan Ali, Joe Flanagan, Jacob Kerr, Savraj Sandhu and Henry Warrington all achieved Copper awards and Harry Copping, Joe Gellett, Youngsik Kim, Zion Kim and James Milton achieved Gold awards. Sam Reynolds was presented with the prestigious Roentgenium Award after an exceptional result placing him in the top 1% of students who sat the examination.
