During the summer, 30 Loreto Chemistry students took part in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge.

Due to the Covid restrictions, the students had to complete a gruelling 90-minute exam at home. They all did brilliantly and passed the challenge, with 13 of the students receiving the Silver Award for their impressive scoring. George Glennon, Muhammad Nadeem, Keira Heslop, Karim Al-Kurd and Faisal Ali, deserve further congratulations as their scores were so good that they were given the Gold Award, which places them in the top 9% of candidates in England.
