Strong showing from QE scientists

A team of boys from Years 9-11 won second place in the regional round of a prestigious Science competition.

Robert Swan, Samuel Carling, Maaz Shahzad and Christopher Suen (pictured, left to right, below) tackled eight rounds of chemistry questions – many of which were outside the curriculum, at the Top of the Bench competition. Twenty-one teams competed at the event, hosted by St Benedict’s School in Ealing.

“The boys performed well,” said Chemistry teacher Elizabeth Kuo.

""“They maintained the high standards set by QE teams in recent years, finishing a commendable second and only dropping 14 marks out of a possible 96.”

The boys were each awarded a prize of £10.
