Top marks in A Level Biology

Top marks in A Level Biology

Congratulations to former Reigate College student Eleanor Dampier who has jointly been awarded the Salters-Nuffield Advanced Biology Prize for gaining one of the five highest marks in last summer’s Edexcel A Level Biology (Salters-Nuffield) examination.
In recognition of her achievement, Eleanor was invited to attend the prestigious Salters’ Institute Annual Awards Ceremony held on Friday 8th December 2017 at Salters’ Hall. The annual event, attended by around 180 guests, celebrates high levels of excellence within the science education sector. 
Eleanor, who is now studying Economics at the University of Bath, was presented with her award by the Rt Hon The Lord Willetts, Executive Chair of the Resolution Foundation and Honorary Freeman of the Salters’ Company, who also delivered a keynote address. 
During the event, Eleanor and Head of Biology Alys Dreux met with Reigate College’s former Head of Biology, Angela Hall, who also taught Alys when she was a student at the College and now works for the Nuffield Foundation and Salters Institute.
Alys commented, “We are incredibly proud of Ellie for this fantastic achievement. It was also very fitting for her to meet Angela who left Reigate to work on the development of the new Salters-Nuffield Advanced Biology course for Edexcel. This is the course we now teach here at Reigate and for which Ellie received her award. In effect, Ellie met her Biology ‘grandmother’ and Angela, her Biology ‘Granddaughter’!”
