The Society has given Excellence Awards to the school pupils who achieved the highest marks nationally in last year’s 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.
Steve Brace, the Society’s Head of Education and Outdoor Learning, said: “We are thrilled to give Excellence Awards to those pupils who have achieved the highest marks nationally in their 2014 geography examinations.
“The pupils receiving these awards have all demonstrated their excellent understanding of geography as a subject and how it can inform us about the world we live in. Their exceptional marks highlight their ability as geographers, as well as the high quality teaching that takes place in their schools.”
The winning students each received a cash prize and certificate from the Society.
