The British Biology Olympiad challenges and stimulates students with an interest in Biology to expand and extend their talents. It enables students to demonstrate their knowledge and to be suitably rewarded and publicly recognised by the award of medals, certificates and other prizes. It is hoped that competing in the Olympiad will encourage students already interested in this valuable, wide-ranging and rewarding subject to continue their study beyond A-level.
For the first time, the Coleshill School is celebrating two medals in the Biology Olympiad competition. A-Level Biology students Elena Ryan and Jess Moon both achieved a bronze medal, placing them in the top 15 per cent of students in the country.
Mrs Rollason, head of science, said: “Both students should be extremely pleased with this achievement, and I hope they enjoyed the experience. The students have demonstrated excellent subject knowledge and enthusiasm for Biology over the last few years and this achievement shows just how hard they work.”
