A Kingsdale Foundation School student has scored one of the highest geography A-Level results in the UK.
Louise Guillaume was given the Excellence Award – a certificate and voucher – from the Royal Geographical Society in recognition of her top A-Level results in 2017.
She has decided to study earth sciences at Imperial College, and told the News: “I have my geography teachers at Kingsdale to thank for this achievement, and the tireless hours they put into the subject inspiring me to pursue geography further.
“I am writing this from Southern Spain where I am currently mapping the geology of the Sorbas Basin!”
“To say that Louise has a natural flair for geography would be an understatement,” explained Kingslake Foundation School’s head of geography, Ms McIntyre, and Mr Unwin, one of Louise’s teachers.
“She is without question as gifted a geographer as we have ever taught and could ever imagine.
“The passion and interest she shows for furthering her understanding about contemporary geographical issues is undiminished and undeterred.
“She will have for certain an incredibly successful career in Earth Sciences at Imperial College London and beyond.
“We have continued to benefit at Kingsdale from her commitment to this school as she has been returning whenever she has a moment to work with and ably support our current A Level students”.
Founded in 1830 and given a Royal Charter in 1859, The Royal Geographical Society, with the Institute of British Geographers, describes itself as the ‘learned society and professional body for geographers’.
