Bancroftian is Top GCSE Geography Student

Many congratulations to Lower Sixth pupil, Laeticia Junanto, who has been awarded a prize for achieving the highest raw mark in the 2016 AQA GCSE Geography A examination taken this summer.

Every year the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) awards prizes to geography students who are the highest scoring candidates in public examinations.  Over 60,000 children sat this examination this summer, so this is really a remarkable achievement.  Mrs Victoria Talbot, Head of Geography at Bancroft’s, said, “I have taught Laeticia every year since the Removes, when she joined Bancroft’s and am currently teaching her at A Level.  She is a talented, hardworking young geographer.”  Laeticia, who would like to go to Cambridge University after A Levels, described the award as quite unexpected!

This is an outstanding achievement and the Society sends our congratulations to Laeticia.

Steve Brace FRGS, Head of Education and Outdoor Learning, Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)
