Reading Girls' School

University Science Challenge

Reading Girls' played host for this local heat, welcoming teams from other local secondary schools.

Reading Girls’ were delighted to host this local heat. We welcomed teams from Emmbrook; Blessed Hugh Faringdon; Highdown; and the John Madejski Academy.

The event was a little like University Challenge (hence the name!) it consisted of two minute rounds, with starter and subsidiary questions. At the end of the event, three teams tied for 1st place, I am glad to say that two of the top three were Reading Girls’!

Normally a tie break would have taken place, but unfortunately Highdown had had to leave, minutes before the final scores were announced. A tie break between our A and B teams left team A victorious, however the organisers have had a think about the 3 way tie, and have decided that it is only fair that all 3 teams are invited to the finals.  This means that both Reading Girls’ A and Reading Girls’ B will invited to the Science Day at Brooklands College on 20th March and will both have a place in the finals quiz along with Highdown School. So, many congratulations Reading Girls’ A and B – you will both be in the finals!
