British Biology Olympiad 2016

Congratulations to a number of the School’s Upper Sixth A2 Biologists who were recently informed of their success in the esteemed British Biology Olympiad 2016. The assessment, which featured over 9000 contestants from across the U.K., was undertaken by the pupils in January with results published only a couple of weeks ago.

Following the assessment the school was informed that Susannah Ashfield had achieved the highest honour available - a Gold Award, with Daniel Weir attaining Silver, Olivia Cullen, Matthew Dane and Medani Elshibly each receiving Bronze Awards and both James Cartlidge and Andrew Ross being Highly Commended.

This was the first year in which all of Grosvenor’s participants were recognised for their achievements, which reflects extremely well on the teaching of the School’s Biology department, led by Mrs Janet Auld.

Well done to all involved in this year’s Olympiad and we now wish each of the competing pupils the best of luck as they commence their A2 examinations over the coming weeks.
