THE top-performing A-Level geography student in the country has been recognised for her work.
Cyane Robinson, who attended Wickersley School, has been given an Excellence Award by the Royal Geographical Society for achieving the highest marks nationally in her geography A Level exams last year.
The society, with the Institute of British Geographers, recognises and celebrates the hard work and success of pupils who achieve the highest marks in their GCSE, A-Level and other exams each year.
Cyane (19) will receive a digital voucher and a certificate from the society.
Steve Brace, the society’s head of education and outdoor learning, said: “The society is delighted to recognise the outstanding work of these young geographers across their GCSE and A Level examinations from 2019.
“Each award is given to students who achieved the highest grade in their exams and illustrates the impressive standard being set in school geography which is taken nationwide by 265,000 GCSE and 34,000 A Level students each year.
“Our Excellence Awards reflect the students’ hard work and their curiosity about the world, but also the support of their geography teachers.
“We hope they will carry their interest of the world’s people, places and environments, and how they are changing, with them into the future.”
