Rosie scoops top award for A Level Food Technology
Congratulations to Rosie Clarke-Burns, a student who left Year 13 in the summer, who has been awarded the British Nutrition Foundation Drummond GCE A Level Prize for 2016. This award is given to the student in the UK who has achieved the highest marks in A Level Food Technology in each examination board. The Foundation rewards excellent work in food and nutrition by students throughout the UK. In addition, it recognises and rewards the work of the student's teacher.
Rosie, who is now studying medicine at the University of Leeds, and her teacher, Mrs Hawkins, both received awards from HRH the Princess Royal, patron of the British Nutrition Foundation, on Tuesday 22nd November 2016. This presentation took place during the BNF Annual Day held at the Royal College of Physicians in London. The award consists of a £100 prize for Rosie and a £200 prize for the school.
Representatives from six other examining boards throughout the UK were also present to receive similar awards for GCSE as well as A Level achievements. The day was attended by many from the Food and Nutrition world, both in education and industry. The awards were preceded by a formal luncheon and followed by the Annual Lecture, given by Professor Phillip Calder, Professor of Nutritional Immunology at the University of Southampton on the subject of ‘Omega-3: the good oil’.
