Congratulations to U6 student Tom for his success in the British Physics Olympiad (BPhO). After achieving a Gold medal in Round 1 with a score that placed him in the top 100 worldwide, Tom was invited to compete in Round 2 where he performed incredibly well to achieve a Bronze medal. To quote the BPhO question setters, the Round 2 paper is an ‘extreme challenge to your academic strength – a test of your stamina, determination and resilience as much as your knowledge of physics and technical skill.’

Well done Tom – a fantastic achievement, and we are very proud of your success!
