Gemma was chosen by staff at the Winchester school for her outstanding effort, enthusiasm and commitment across all areas of science during her year in Year 9.

Gemma spent the day in Oxford with her family, visiting Magdalen College and finding out about life as a student. At Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Gemma was joined by other school award winners from the South East and the day ended with an inspirational talk entitled Super Intense Lasers by Dr Ceri Brenner.
