3 May - AS Physics Olympiad


On Thursday afternoon, Manav (one of our future school captains) attended a presentation ceremony for his exceptional performance in the AS Physics Olympiad. This was held in the grandiose surroundings of the Royal Society in London. Manav was one of the finalists in the selection process for the British Team for the International Astrophysics and Astronomy Olympiad, placing him in the top 10 students in the country. Manav was presented with his prize by Professor John Zarnecki, the President of the Astronomical Society. The afternoon was rounded off by a fascinating lecture by Professor Zarnecki, who worked on several high profile space missions (Giotto, Rosetta, Cassini-Huygens, Rosetta, Hubble Space Telescope) and holds the distinction of being photographed with the unlikely trio of Tony Blair, Neil Armstrong and Yuri Gagarin (not simultaneously!). Congratulations to Manav on this amazing achievement.
