Kate Saldanha, a former Mayfield School pupil, has received an award from Cambridge International Examinations to acknowledge her outstanding performance in achieving the highest mark for Cambridge Pre-U in Art and Design in the June 2015 public exams, while at the School. Kate, who is currently studying Project Design at Edinburgh University, was among 26 students who achieved the highest marks in Cambridge Pre-U subjects. All award winners were rewarded with an official certificate from Cambridge recognising their achievement. Head of Ceramics at Mayfield School, Tim Rees-Moorlah said that this achievement recognised the talent, dedication and commitment of Kate, adding: “I was overjoyed to hear the news that Kate achieved her outstanding award from CIE. The national standard of work for Pre-U is exceptionally high and it is a clear recognition of the quality and maturity that Kate achieved in her submission. She has set a very high bar for the other Pre-U students in our current sixth form but Mayfield girls are good at rising to a challenge!” Michael O’Sullivan, Chief Executive, Cambridge International Examinations said: “Congratulations to Kate who has worked so hard to achieve this success in her Cambridge examinations. Topping the list of excellent candidates in a Cambridge Pre-U subject is a performance of the very highest calibre. On behalf of Cambridge International Examinations I offer sincere congratulations for this outstanding achievement.” 170 UK independent and state schools teach Cambridge Pre-U, which is recognised by universities in the UK and a growing number in the US, including all Ivy League colleges.
