Prizes for Sixth Form Chemists of 2009 nominated by Oxfordshire schools

Sixth formers

In November 2009, schools in Oxfordshire nominated one outstanding Year 13 student for the Sixth Form Chemist of 2009. The Award was hosted by Oxford University, SCI and the Oxfordshire Independent and State Schools Partnership (OISSP).

Prize winners were presented with certificates and book tokens at the University of Oxford Physical and Theoretical Building, South Parks Road. Parents and teachers joined students on the evening, which included a guided tour of the Central Research Laboratories and a spectacular display of ‘Chemical Magic’ by Dr Malcolm Stewart (University of Oxford) and Roger Nixon (Wheatley Park School and RSC Scholar for 2009). The awards were presented by Andrew Ladds, CEO of SCI 2005-10.

The Sixth Form Chemist of 2009 Awards is a joint project in increasing scientific awareness and achievement in the community. The OISSP is a local collaboration of independent and maintained schools in Oxfordshire, working together to raise achievement by sharing information, resources, and partnership activities and events. Tom Kempton, Project Director of the OISSP, said: ‘The event is a chance to celebrate the talent of exceptional students within our county’s schools. The SCI and the University’s involvement will raise aspirations and encourage students to apply their Chemistry skills in higher education and in industry’.
