Pupil wins gold in a physics competition
A PUPIL from a boys school has won a gold award in a national physics competition.
Devonport High School for Boys Sixth Form student, Samuel Lloyd, won the accolade through the British Physics Olympiad (BPhO) which aims to encourage the study of physics and recognise excellence in young physicists through annual physics competitions.
The physics paper is designed to stretch and challenge the top young physicists in the country in a national competition, and Sam's Gold Award is a significant achievement.
The competitions are designed to test understanding and problem solving skills and are open to able young physicists in Year 11-13 (GCSE to A2 or equivalent).

Deputy headteacher and teacher of physics, Dave Adams, said: "I am so pleased to see Sam's hard work and determination recognised and rewarded at a national level. To gain a Gold Award in this most prestigious and intellectually demanding competition is a superb achievement."
Sam's fellow DHSB sixth formers Sam Wylie, Joshua Broughton, George AHwker and Rowan Hemsi also won Silver or Bronze awards at the Olympiad.
Kieran Earley, headteacher of Devonport High School for Boys, added: "Physics is thriving at Devonport High School for Boys with a dedicated group of students taking the lead in organising trips to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and giving weekly seminars on topics beyond the A-level course."
