The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) has given Excellence Awards to the school pupils who achieved the highest marks nationally in the 2014 geography examinations.
The Society’s Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate the hard work and success of the pupils who achieve the highest marks in the GCSE, IGCSE, Level 1/Level 2 Certificate, A Level, International Baccalaureate and Pre-U geography examinations each year. Students from schools across England, Northern Ireland and Wales are eligible for the awards.
