Comment on this story on the

Nikhil, who lives in Chiswick, has won a bronze medal at the British Biology Olympiad.

He was part of a team of students from Latymer Upper School who are now celebrating an exceptional medal haul at the event.

Nikhil's fellow students also did well - Camille and Matilda both got awarded a Gold, which is only awarded to the top 5% of the 10,000 students who took part; Caitlin, Kiara and Nina got Silver and Michael, Jemima and Jessica got bronze. All of them are in the Lower Sixth Form which makes their achievements even more impressive as the competition is open to all Sixth Formers across the UK.

“I’m incredibly proud of our students,” said Kate Bartlett, Teacher of Biology. “This is a prestigious and highly competitive competition. Students are presented with topics and ideas which they are not familiar with, and have to compete by using their problem-solving skills and understanding of core principles. So they’ve demonstrated not only great understanding of the subject, but also their abilities to use and apply their knowledge.”

The British Biology Olympiad (BBO) challenges and stimulates students with an interest in biology to expand and extend their talents. It enables students, aged 16+ to demonstrate their talent and to be suitably rewarded with publicly recognised certificates.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least two articles a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
