Chemistry students enter 'Top of the Bench'

RSC Top of the Bench Competition

On Saturday 11 January, 4 GCSE Chemistry students from Years 9, 10 and 11 took part in the annual 'Top of the Bench' competition run by the Royal Society of Chemistry, held at Lancaster University.

Josh Ellis and Rafferty Fleming from Year 9  joined Victoria Manifold (Year 10) and Lucy Seward (Year11) in a fun-packed practical session in the Chemistry department at Lancaster University.

Chemistry teacher, Mrs Morgan, who accompanied the students said "The students really enjoyed  themselves, even though they had given up their Saturday to take part! Whilst they did not win they all did really well and actually Lucy received a certificate for being the best Year 11 student of the day."

Students were nominated by their Chemistry teachers and the event included 5 schools from the North West.
