Oakham School pupil, Silas Mason, has been recognised by the Royal Geographical Society for achieving one of the highest scores in GCSE Geography in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Sixteen-year-old Silas has been awarded an �Excellence Award�, which includes a certificate and a cash award. �I am really delighted to win the prize � it was very unexpected!� said Silas.

�This is an exceptional achievement,� says Headmaster Nigel Lashbrook. �It is a testament to all of the hard work and effort that Silas put into preparing for his examinations last summer � we are all very proud of his success.�

Geography is a popular subject at Oakham School, with many pupils choosing to study it every year at GCSE, A Level and as part of the IB.

Steve Brace, RGS-IBG Head of Education and Outdoor Learning, said �The Royal Geographical Society is delighted to give Excellence Awards to those pupils who have achieved some of the highest marks nationally in the 2013 Geography examinations. It is a real pleasure to celebrate the work of Britain�s next generation of geographers.�
