A team of Sixth Form students has been awarded 3rd prize in a prestigious national competition organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry.  The Schools’ Analyst competition gave Olivia Jones, Joe Thomas and Sophie Whistler the chance to work with state of the art equipment at the Plymouth University laboratories, competing against teams from the whole of the South West.  The 3 team-mates, who had been selected from a strong cohort of A-level Chemistry students, solved complex practical problems using advanced skills practised with their mentor Dr. Chris Hall.  The experiments were particularly difficult this year, with a number of teams failing to finish.  In fact, the Hele’s team completed the 4 hour challenge with 15 seconds to spare!

Principal Justine Mason congratulated the students on their outstanding achievement, commenting that their success reflects the increasingly high standard of Chemistry at Hele’s School.
