High-scorer gets national award for geography
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.”
