The British Biology Olympiad is run by the Royal Society of Biology for A level biology students and over eight thousand students took part in the competition this year including a team of thirteen from Chigwell.  The questions extend across a wide-ranging syllabus and the aim is to challenge the very best biology students.  The results were very good with three of the team achieving medals.  Congratulations go to: Becky Morgan who achieved a silver medal; Poppy Bradley and Piers Daniel who were awarded bronze medals; Julia Lasiota and Maddy McCormack who were Highly Commended; and Haaris Anwar and Simren Patel who were both Commended.
