We are delighted to announce the recipients of our 2018 Excellence Awards, and congratulate the pupils who achieved the highest marks nationally in last summer’s geography examinations.
The awards celebrate the hard work and achievement of pupils in GCSE, IGCSE, A Level, Pre-U and International Baccalaureate geography examinations each year, and students from England, Northern Ireland and Wales are eligible for the awards.
Steve Brace, Head of Education and Outdoor Learning, said: “We are delighted to recognise the outstanding success of these pupils. The Excellence Awards reflect their hard work, the support of their geography teachers, and the pupils’ curiosity about their world which we hope they will carry with them into the future.”
The winning pupils, named below, each receive a voucher and certificate from the Society for their achievement.
