Students honoured at education awards

THE achievements of students at The Henley College were recognised at its annual education awards.

Thirty-five teenagers were presented with certificates at the ceremony in the college’s Rotherfield Hall.

The maths prize went to Will Manson, from Shiplake Cross, who was described as an “outstanding mathematician”.

The 18-year-old achieved an A* in A-level further maths and then taught himself six additional maths units to achieve an A* in the additional maths A-level.

Will, who earned a place at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, said: “I’m obsessed with maths but I had to put in a significant amount of work to pass the sixth term examination paper, a large part of my Cambridge offer. There were plenty of nine-hour library sessions.
