Success for Lyonians at the 2024 British Biology Olympiad

Congratulations to all John Lyon Sixth Form students who participated in this year’s highly prestigious British Biology Olympiad.

Our students achieved outstanding results, with two Silver awards (Hugo Hudson and Alexander Rothwell) and two Bronze awards (Avi Patel and Caelum Chang). Additionally, four students were highly commended, and six were commended.

“I am delighted by the enthusiasm and dedication demonstrated by our students,” stated Dr Kochaj, Head of Biology. “They have not only demonstrated a profound understanding of the subject but also their ability to apply their knowledge.” Hugo Hudson, who achieved the highest score at John Lyon, added: ‘It was a great experience, and I thoroughly enjoyed discovering links to topics we have studied at A Level.’

The British Biology Olympiad (BBO) is a highly competitive competition that challenges students aged 16 and above with an interest in Biology to expand and extend their talents.
