With multiple teams competing online, Tonbridge students earned a national best in an international physics competition

Tonbridge School picked up ‘Top in the UK’ in the recent International Physics Brawl, organised by Charles University. Two teams from Upper and Lower Sixth competed in the online global challenge, which tests Physics and problem-solving ability. The Upper Sixth boys also achieved 34th out of 188 teams, placing them among the top fifth worldwide by age category.

A total of eight teams from the Kent school, made up of 36 Upper and Lower Sixth boys, took part in the contest. Chris Powell, Head of Physics, says: “The calibre of the questions would not be out of place at university level, and the results show our boys’ ability to successfully apply their classroom learning to an advanced, competitive setting such as this”. The International Physics Brawl is organised by Charles University in the Czech Republic. The teams competed in the online challenge in the school’s state-of-the-art, RIBA Award-winning Barton Science Centre.
