Broughton Hall High School - One Heart, One Mind

Three of our Year 12 AS Chemistry students recently represented Broughton Hall in the Regional Heat of the Royal Society of Chemistry's Young Analyst Competition. This was hosted by the University of Liverpool and featured a total of 28 schools attending from all over the region.

The students carried out challenging practical work in the University teaching laboratories. The task given to the students was to analyse the chlorine content of different samples of swimming pool water. The students performed well in the competition which involved them using known A level practical techniques but they also had the opportunity to learn some new, more advanced laboratory skills.

It was an intense but worthwhile and enjoyable day!
