The Society has given Excellence Awards to the school pupils who achieved the highest marks nationally in the 2016 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, Certificate in Geography, A Level, International Baccalaureate and Pre-U geography examinations each year. Pupils 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: “The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) is delighted to recognise the hard work and success of those pupils who achieved the highest marks nationally in the 2016 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 reflect both their ability as geographers and the high quality teaching that takes place in their schools.”
The pupils each receive a cash prize and certificate from the Society.
