Fifth Year pupil Gordon Sivarajan has proven himself to be amongst the brightest school-age scientific minds in the UK, winning a Gold medal in the recent British Biology Olympiad Competiton.

The national science competition, organised by the Royal Society of Biology, tests pupils’ knowledge of a wide-ranging Biology syllabus, and this year saw 9,400 school pupils from across the UK taking part.

34 Fifth and Sixth Year High School pupils entered this year’s competition, with Gordon winning Gold and three others - Emily Milner-Smith, Mark Ward (both S6) and Lujine Ibrahim (S5) - winning Bronze medals.

Jenna Steel, Thomas Whitelaw (both S6), Eilidh Davidson, David Devlin, Avril Lai, Jack Lord and Cosima Schwahn (all S5) were ‘highly commended’, while Lucy Goodwin, Andrew Taylor (both S6), Maryam Khan, Roma Lynch, Aine Macpherson, Bharath Mukunda Das and Anna Pover (all S5) received commendations.
