Many congratulations to Nottingham High School for being crowned national runners-up in the national final of the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Top of the Bench Competition.The Nottingham High School team won the East Midlands’ final in January and went on to compete in the national final on Saturday 2nd April at Imperial College London.A very strong field of 28 teams were present, each having won their respective regional finals. They took part in an intensive day of written papers and practical work in the university labs. The team did really well in all sections, only narrowly missing out on first place. They were presented with a silver salver and some tokens. Congratulations to the Nottingham High School team for representing the East Midlands so well!
