Four of our Year 8 students – Rose Preston, Millie Beedles, Joshua Grundy and Joe James – attended the Salters’ Chemistry Festival at Liverpool John Moores’ University on Tuesday this week.

They competed against 11 other schools from across the Northwest. in a series of challenges designed to test their experimental, analytical and problem solving skills.

Against stiff competition our team came first in the University Challenge competition where they had to manipulate the rate of a chemical reaction.

Very well done!
