Biology Challenge 2018

This year top set Year 10 students from Trinity showed off their scientific prowess by entering the annual Biology Challenge competition run by the Royal Society of Biology. The Biology Challenge is an online competition run by the Society with the aim of developing and recognising knowledge and interest in biological sciences. Both groups were able to demonstrate their understanding of the topics they have been studying this year including bioenergetics and ecology as well as answering questions which demand having a key interest in biology outside of the laboratory.

This is the fourth consecutive year that students from Trinity have entered the competition and they have surpassed expectations once again. Particular mention should be given to Harvey Bedwell who is the first Trinity student to receive a gold award in the challenge, which was awarded to only the top 5% of participants.  Of the 50 Trinity students who participated, 16 were commended and 12 were highly commended. Furthermore, the following students received greater accolades based on their high scores:

Harvey Bedwell – Gold

Ethan Sheard – Silver

Rebecca Jenkins – Silver

Kaitlin James – Silver

Harry Craig – Silver

Jai Chupreecha – Bronze

Ellouise Greenall – Bronze

Cameron Blatch – Bronze

Kamil Budzynski – Bronze

Callum Mottram – Bronze

Henry Dipple – Bronze

Aaron Brown – Bronze

Rebecca Porter – Bronze

Kelsey Barlett – Bronze


Miss Lily Green, the Science teacher who coordinated the school’s entry said, “Congratulations to all the talented students who participated, and if you are a keen biologist currently in year 9 then watch this space next year!”
