British Physics Olympiad

A record number of Minster students attempted the 2019 British Physics Olympiad in both Years 11 and 12.  

A record number of Minster students attempted the 2019 British Physics Olympiad in both Years 11 and 12.   Up against the best physicists from the most prestigious state and private schools in the country, our students showed that they could more than hold their own.  The GCSE and AS challenge papers are significantly more difficult than anything that the students would normally attempt. A Year 11 student said "it was the hardest thing I have ever done"

A number of students did particularly well and achieved the higher level awards.  For more information, see our June WORKS newsletter.
