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.'
