A student from Hurstpierpoint College has won a Royal Geographical Society award.

Milo Nicholson, an A-level student at Hurstpierpoint College last year, has won an award for excellence from the Royal Geographical Society.

As the top performer in the 2016 WJEC A-level Geography examination, Milo received a certificate and a £50 monetary award.

Steve Brace, head of education and outdoor learning from the Royal Geographical Society, said: “Very many congratulations to Milo for gaining this award for one of the highest examination marks for A-level Geography in 2016.

“This is an exceptional achievement and all of us at the Society wish Milo the very best of luck in his future studies and career.”

Alongside an A* in Geography, Milo also achieved an A* in Religious Studies and an A in Business Studies in his other two A-level subjects.

Currently studying Liberal Arts with a major in philosophy at the University of Leeds, Milo is considering a law conversion at the end of his degree.
