Greenfield Community College is proud to have nominated two students this year for the ‘Schools Physicist of the Year’ celebration. Kieran Wilkinson, a student in year 10 at the Sunnydale Campus, and William Archer, in year 10 at the Aycliffe Campus.

The Physicist of the Year event will include engaging demonstrations and interactive activities, and will be held at Durham University on 16th June 2015. It will celebrate the talent of exceptional school students and highlight the excitement and opportunities of studying physics.

Kieran was nominated for his love and enthusiasm of science as well as his continued progress and excellent attitude to learning. He often impresses teachers with his extensive knowledge and keen enthusiasm for physics. He is keen to share his findings and hopes to advance in this field.

William has been one of the most conscientious and enthusiastic students in triple science this year. He inspires others in his practical groups to succeed and has been an outstanding STEM leader throughout year 9 and 10. William achieved the highest Physics marks in triple science this year across both groups and we are confident he will excel in his science GCSE examinations next year.

The event is sponsored by the Ogden trust and guest speaker, Prof Carlos Frenk, Ogden Professor of Fundamental Physics and winner of the Royal Astronomical Society Gold Medal, will be presenting the awards. Nominated students will receive a certificate, prize and the opportunity to apply for Ogden Scholarships. Good luck to Keiran from all of us at Greenfield!
