Science award


S6 pupil Christopher Docherty collected his prestigious Roentgenium Award at a ceremony in London last month.

The award is presented to pupils in top 0.8% of all entrants in the Cambridge University Chemistry Challenge, which is a 90 minute written paper set by a team of teachers and university chemists.

Christopher, the only pupil from Scotland to win the award, attended the reception in the magnificent Goldsmith’s Hall with his teacher Dr Smith.

Each pupil delivered a short presentation on an element of their choice before listening to a talk by Cambridge University’s Peter Wothers on ‘Planets and Elements’.
