Congratulations to our 4 students that attended the 2020 Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards held at Eden Park.
Pippa Benton, Dux of the College in 2019, attained three ‘A*” grades at A level in Biology; Chemistry; Marine Science. She has also attained a ‘High Achievement’ award from Cambridge, with the top mark in the world for Marine Science.
Cambridge International has recognised:
Jacob Urlich (Agriculture) for a ‘High Achievement’ award and
Jessica Carswell (Mathematics) and
Heather Nichols (Art and Design) for ‘Top in New Zealand’ awards.
* 'High Achievement’ is still first (in NZ or in the world), but that this term is used for subjects with candidate entries that do not meet a particular threshold i.e. subjects with smaller numbers of candidates attempting the examination.
Well done! We are so proud of your monumental achievements!
