Gold Award winner Holly Mitchell, who was at Woodcote School before coming to Reigate, explained: “It was interesting to see how the Chemistry I’ve been learning at A Level was applied to real life situations. Taking part in the Chemistry Olympiad is a great way of stretching yourself. I’m hoping to study Chemistry at Imperial College London when I leave Reigate.”
