Haileybury Science Challenge

Year 5 team at the Haileybury Science Challenge

On Thursday 16th June 2016 a team of four Year 5 boys from Lochinver House were invited to represent the school and take part in Haileybury’s annual Science competition.


The Science Challenge consists of three science-based tasks, involving problem-solving skills and teamwork in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. There were twenty prep schools competing. Our team of Arthur Gold, Taiyler Popat, Samuel Vickers and Isaac Walters performed very well in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. A sumptuous lunch was provided by Haileybury followed by a ‘Fun Science Demonstration’. First prize was awarded in each category and though we did not win, the team had a super day and a marvellous experience in the Haileybury laboratories. It was also great fun to meet and chat with a number of old boys.
