A FREMAN College pupil has been recognised for outstanding performance in one of his GCSE subjects.

Tom Armond, pictured, was awarded an ­Excellence in Geography by the Royal Geographic Society with IBG.

He said: "I was really pleased to find out I'd won the award. It felt like all my hard work had really paid off."

The award is granted only to the highest achievers in the subject in both A-level and GCSE exams.

Steve Brace, head of education and outdoor learning at the RGS-IBG, said: "The Royal Geographic Society with IBG is delighted to give Tom an award for his achievement as one of this year's best geography students."

Tom, who is now studying for his A-levels at the school, received a cash prize, along with a certificate signed by the director of the Royal ­Geographic Society, Dr Rita Gardner.

The award is designed to promote interest in geography by recognising and rewarding the most outstanding performers each year.
