High-scorer gets na­tional award for ge­og­ra­phy

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

A GE­OG­RA­PHY stu­dent from Mac­cles­field was among the high­est scor­ing can­di­dates in his sub­ject.

James Mus­grave, 16, who goes to All Hal­lows Catholic Col­lege, re­ceived an award from the Royal Ge­o­graph­i­cal So­ci­ety for achiev­ing an ex­cep­tion­ally high score on his GCSE ge­og­ra­phy ex­ams last year.

Mrs Gar­vey, as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal at the school, said: “As one of our high­est per­form­ing stu­dents at GCSE, it came as no sur­prise to re­ceive no­ti­fi­ca­tion of this award. It is well de­served.”

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 stu­dents who achieved the high­est marks na­tion­ally in the 2015 ge­og­ra­phy ex­am­i­na­tions.

“The stu­dents 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.”
