Top of the Bench 2019

Sackville students are (nearly) ‘top of the bench’

Each year we send a selection of our top chemists to the national Top of the Bench competition. This year Tom Salter and Grace Kolter (year 9) Matthew Botten (year 10, pictured) and Sophie Taylor (year 11, pictured) represented Sackville.

The students are really put through their paces in this competition, with a practical section followed by some seriously testing multiple choice questions. We didn’t quite make the top two, who go through to the next round, but our competitors were strongly commended.

Well done to our team and thank-you to Mr Groves and Mr Langford for organising the trip.
