A Year 12 Drapers’ Academy student won a special prize in a chemistry contest organised by Cambridge University.

Pauline Siasat, a chemistry A-level student at the Harold Hill school, was the first Drapers’ student to enter the Cambridge Chemistry Competition.

The contest is designed to challenge science students, especially those who are considering taking chemistry at university.

And Pauline’s efforts in the competition’s first stage – a 90-minute written test – earned her a decorative crystal block displaying a giant hydrogen orbital.
